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 57 North is a no age statement, cask strength bottling that bears the name of the 57th north line of latitude where the Isle of Skye lies. Matured exclusively in American oak refill casks at the shores of Loch Harport, this dram is pretty rich in smoke and peat, packs a powerful punch at 57% alcohol and is one of the most interesting expressions of Talisker distillery. This is Talisker’s trademark taste brought surprisingly to a whole new level of intensity and character!
