A classic
 
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 10 YO is a true house representative that sticks to the distilleries definition of what their Single Malt should be all about. It just delivers that smoky soul from the beginning to the end. A wonderful expression that is just a great intro to what Talisker has to offer.

I love this scotch. Salty, peaty, and oh so good! Plus the Bond tie-in makes an even more tempting buy. Bond fan or not, this scotch is great!

Honestly, one of the best scotch whiskeys I have ever tasted. The perfect balance of smokey, spicy, and sweet notes in one dram.

Very smooth. Although I did enjoy the port ruighe much more. Has a sweet taste, followed by smoke, and then a little salt. It lingers for a while as well leaving a nice peaty taste.
