Product Description

It was voted 'BEST SINGLE MALT WHISKY IN THE WORLD' in the World Whisky Awards 2007. Talisker 18 Year Old is a gem from one of Scotland's most reknown whisky distilleries. It has a fine balance of peat, spice and sweetness. Definitely one to savour!

Amber in colour with a rich and fruity nose - Victoria plums, greengages, perhaps dried orange peel - with some butterscotch or rum toffee and a thread of smoke behind. The smoke soon advances into the foreground and the toffee note is joined by a light mintiness. With water maritime characteristics emerge - dry boat varnish, edible seaweed. Still sweet; now with notes of iodine and the smokiness of an un-struck match.

It has full, pleasant, smooth body. On the palate it's sweet in front, then more assertive, with a whiff of smoke. The overall effect is warming. The development is towards smoke, coal-tar and toffee.

A medium length finish. Talisker's characteristic chilli 'catch' in the finish is subtly present in the aftertaste.
