Talisker distillery was founded in 1830 by Hugh and Kenneth MacAskil at Carbost, on the Isle of Skye. In all these years Talisker's distillation method has remained virtually unchanged, refusing to go with the flow of the industry, well...asides from the necessary health and safety improvements. As the only distillery on the Isle of Skye, Talisker's drams are quite idiosyncratic, defining an Island Malt style that is very much their own.
Talisker 10YO is a true house representative that sticks to the distilleries definition of what their Single Malt should be all about. Distilled by the sea on the shores of the Isle of Skye in Scotland, it just delivers that smoky soul from the beginning to the end. A wonderful full-bodied expression that is just a great intro to what Talisker has to offer. Oh and it earned a double gold medal at the 2020 San Francisco World Spirits Competition and 94 points at the 2019 Ultimate Spirits Challenge.
*Talisker has recently changed their labels, and as the original labels are being phased out, there is still a chance that you might receive a bottle different than what is pictured. But rest assured, the liquid remains the same, regardless of the label.

The Flavor Spiral™ shows the most common flavors that you'll taste in Talisker 10 Year Old and gives you a chance to have a taste of it before actually tasting it.
We invented Flavor Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.
