"The king o' drinks, as I conceive it, Talisker." – Robert Louis Stevenson
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 virtually the same, refusing to go with the flow of the industry, other than with 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 their very own.
Bottled at the distillery’s natural cask strength of 45.8%, this sophisticated dram is well refined as you’d expect from a Whisky of this vintage. The Whisky itself has been matured in a combination of American Oak and European Oak refill casks to give it that gorgeous golden colour fresh from the Isle of Skye.
