Talisker Aged 8 Years Single Malt Scotch Whisky – 2020 Special Release (700ml)
Volume: 700ml ABV: 57.9% Age: 8 Years Old Country: Scotland
Talisker distillery is an Island single malt Scotch whisky distillery based in Carbost, Scotland on the Isle of Skye. This Scottish West Coast distillery is operated by Diageo who also own distilleries such as Lagavulin, Cardhu, Cragganmore, Mortlach and many more. The distillery was founded in 1830 but rebuilt in 1880. The malted barley used in production comes from Muir of Ord and Talisker has an unusual feature, swan neck lye pipes. A loop in the pipes takes the vapour from the stills to the worm tubs so some of the alcohol already condenses before it reaches the cooler. It then runs back into the stills and is distilled again. Talisker now has an output of three and a half million litres of spirit per annum.
This 2020 Special Release was aged for 8 years in Caribbean rum casks, which is the first time for Talisker. Bottled at 57.9% ABV.
Nose: Sweet coastal elements, citrus and smoky meats. Late elements of fruits and more smoke.
