"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.

Talisker Distillers Edition 2014 is an extra-matured (or double-matured) Single Malt that was distilled in 2003. It was first matured in American oak casks, and later in ex-Amoroso Sherry casks. The amount of time it spent in each type of casks is unknown, but we reckon it spent the majority of time in American oak casks. This double maturation process is by no means unique. It is however, interesting on the palate, especially for a Talisker with its idiosyncratic taste. Thus with the Distillers Edition you get a wonderful combination of peat, smoke and sweetness.
