Island Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Distillery Bottling 70cl / 59.7%
The 2021 Special Release Talisker 8-year-old has finally arrived, which is something to be thankful for, particularly as it's one of the diminishing number of Diageo Special Releases that cater to normal people who don't want to spend over £100 on a bottle of whisky (ie almost everyone).
Even better, this is one Special Release with a cask recipe that wasn't selected by throwing darts blindfold in a wine cellar: Ex-bourbon and refill casks all the way, baby! Bottled at 56.2%, and with an impressively high score from a certain influential moustachioed Bugatti-fancier based in Alsace, this 2021 Talisker 8-year-old also features an anime Sea Dragon on the label - nobody tell Bowmore, please.

Official Tasting Notes
A straight and classic Talisker, this is a wonderfully clearsighted, powerfully fire- breathing sea-monster of a malt, with a direct and bold nature.
