Island Single Malt Whisky
Bottled By: Distillery 70cl / 45.8%
The 2022 release of the Classic Malts Distillers Edition Talisker, probably the most popular of the Distillers Editions after the Lagavulin, just as in the normal Classic Malts.
Talisker Distillers Edition benefits from a secondary maturation in casks seasoned with Amoroso, a rare sherry style wine that gives the Talisker a lifted sweetness with noticeable dried fruit and nutty flavours.

Official Tasting Notes
Appearance: Rich amber. Fine beading. Good viscosity.
Nose: A pungent nose with clean ozone-fresh sea-air and beach seaweed backed by richer, smokier notes, sweet malt and sultana sweetness from the cask; gloriously well combined and harmonious.
Palate: An oily-smooth texture, the taste at once smoky and briny yet sweet with rich fruit too, quickly growing more peppery, as woody spiciness takes a clear interest. Luxurious suggestions of roasted fig and sweet date are firmly backed throughout by peat smoke and sea-salt, and there’s a smoothness to the chili ‘catch’ as it goes down.
Finish: Long, powerful and while still sweet, now drying too, with lingering peat smoke and cocoa nibs.
