"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 2019 is an extra-matured (or double-matured) Single Malt that was distilled in 2009. 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.

Max,
One of the first DE's and fine scotches that I bought. I'll miss it now that it's gone.

Matt,
A flawlessly balanced, delicious whisky. Distiller's Edition is a mildly peated, brilliant iteration of what Talisker does best, and one of Diageo's best Distiller's Editions. The addition of the amoroso sherry finish really mellows out the Talisker 10 profile and adds some incredible fruity notes on the palate and the finish. This is a complete, balanced whisky and absolutely worth the price of admission.

Todd,
This is for the 2015 edition - It's not bottled to be any different from year to year, so it shouldn't matter if it's 2005 edition or 2004 edition (or newer) - it should be more or less the same. The Distillers Edition starts with the 10 Year Talisker, then finishes it in Amoroso (sherry) Casks. Aroma is just inviting - some fruit sweetness, candy, along with sea freshness. The taste is quite good - you get the expected Talisker pepper, along with some other spices, but then you get the fruit sweetness as well. Still have some sea brine going on too - really quite enjoyable. A dash of water seems to bring out the brine in the aroma and in the taste too - seems better neat. One of the best so far.

Jyrki,
Talisker and Laphroaig are my go to scoths. I've never had a bad dram with them. This is absolutely brilliant. Tasty medicine cabinet straight from the smoker. Love it!

Sophian,
This was an acquired taste: I love Talisker 10 and I like deep juicy sweetish sherry. However the two did not go hand-in-glove in my view. But let it breathe in the glass for a couple of minutes, and somehow some magic happens and there is some resonance. Overall a sweet-engine oil initial punch, followed by smooth briny tar ropes and smoke.
