"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 is a double-matured Single Malt that was distilled in 2010. 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.

Blended Whiskies are the result of years of craftsmanship and dedication. A master blender does not simply wake up one day with a profound ability to create a cohesive and enjoyable liquid. From nosing the liquid to working out quantities of each different grain and malt to go into the blend, a master blender can take years, if not decades, to train.
90% of all Scotch Whiskies sold are Blends.
Scotch Whisky is seldom aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation. In addition to that, Whisky is often matured or finished in various wine casks such as Sherry or Port.
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.
Can Scotch go bad? Technically, an unopened bottle of Scotch can last forever. Air is the only true evil to Whisky; once the liquid is oxidized it is no longer immortal. After opening, as long as you store your Whisky in a cool, dry place, it will last another 5 years.
Scotland is home to more than 20 million casks of maturing Whisky. That’s four for every person living there. Nuts!
