If there is a "best" Talisker Single Malt, this one gets our vote.

Talisker distillery was founded in 1830 by Hugh and Kenneth MacAskil at Carbost on the the Isle of Skye. In all these years Talisker's distillation method has remained unchanged. In fact, when the entire distillery burnt to the ground in 1960 they rebuilt everything back to the original specs.

Talisker is owed by Diageo but is operated by United Distillers and Vintners and those guys do a good job keeping the mealy corporate hands off of the malt. Today, Talisker is the only distillery on the Isle of Skye — the coolest island name on the planet — creating a full range of island-style, medium-peated, Single Malt agings and finished-wood Whiskies.

Talisker 25 Year Old is an enigma — It’s VERY special because it’s not trying to be fancy. It follow the classic rules of fine malted grain, perfected distillation, and time in the barrel… LOTS of time in the barrel. This exceptional Single Malt is aged a full quarter century in a combination of new American oak and refill European oak casks on site where the beautiful Isle of Skye meets the sea.

Categories of Scotch Whisky: Single malt, Blended malt (formerly called Vatted malt), blended, single grain and blended grain Scotch.
Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most Single Malts are matured longer, though).
Single malt stands for around 10% of the Scotch market. This is a malt containing only one grain, legally required to be barley in Scotland, and made at a single distillery.

A blended Scotch is a combination of different malts from different distilleries. It is typically made from grain Whisky but does include malt Whisky to give it a more complex body.
First-class Whiskies are taxed not only by the state but also by the angels. This refers to the 4% of Whisky that evaporates from the barrels every year, a phenomenon known as the angel’s share.
When the lease was up for the land Talisker was built on in 1892, the parcel was held by clan MacLeod. Their leader negotiated for an annual payment of £23.12, and a ten-gallon cask of best-quality malt Whisky. Not a bad deal.
Is Scotch always Scottish? What do you think? Yes. The answer is yes.
