    Talisker is the (for now) only distillery on the isle of Skye and went into production in 1830. In 1925 it became part of Distillers Company, the current Diageo. The distillery was destroyed by fire in… read more

  • Talisker 1999 Distillers Edition - Good, but too predictable...

    By hunggar on 7th Apr 20142014-04-07T20:39:00


    I’m slowly working my way to buying a Lagavulin DE. It’s expensive, and I’ve yet to pull the trigger on the increasingly ridiculous price tag. In the mean time I was happy to grab a bottle of Talisker DE… read more

    This whisky is from the coastal classic malt box that I purchased to explore some single malts. After opening I reqlly disliked it but now, after a few weeks, it starts to attract me more and more ! Nose… read more

  • Talisker 1998 Distillers Edition - Sherried peat

    By Aulay on 17th Mar 20142014-03-17T02:23:00


    Delicious nose. Smokey, sweet, salty toffee. A tasty Talisker delivery with that spicy peat smoke backed up by fruits and sweet toffee. A medium-long finish that does not dissapoint. Well enjoyed overall… read more

  • Talisker 57º North - Could be from Islay

    By Aulay on 17th Mar 20142014-03-17T01:34:00


    Wow, what a powerful nose with bold Peat smoke (reminiscent of a Laphroaig) with just a hint of toffee and salty sea air in the background. At 57%, this whiskey has a solid peppery burn to it with the… read more

  • Talisker 18 Year old - Awards Night

    By talexander on 9th Mar 20142014-03-09T16:14:00


    So tonight is the Canadian Screen Awards, our country's answer to the Oscars. Since no-one goes to Canadian films (so the public has no idea what is up for awards), they have to jazz it up by awarding TV… read more

    If you've known me for longer then 15 minutes you know that my favorite Scottish distillery is Talisker, hands down. I've visited the distillery on the Isle of Skye, I was one of the first people in … read more

  • Talisker 2004 Distillery Only Special Vatting - Lamp Oil

    By markjedi1 on 25th Feb 20142014-02-25T20:26:00


    This bottle has become quite rare. It is a special vatting that was available only at the distillery as of 2004. Only 350 bottles were released at the almost unique (for Talisker) strength of 60% ABV.… read more

  • Talisker 25 Year old Bot 2008 - Savour

    By markjedi1 on 25th Feb 20142014-02-25T20:25:00


    When this release of the Talisker 25 Year Old hit the shelves in 2006, it was still bottled at a cask strength (while subsequent releases are now bottled at the trademark 45,8%). The nose is spicy to be… read more

  • Talisker 12 Year old Friends of Classic Malts - Floral

    By markjedi1 on 25th Feb 20142014-02-25T20:25:00


    This Talisker was bottled especially for the Friends of the Classic Malts and contains a 12 Year Old (as opposed to the traditional 10 Year Old, I suppose). It is a celebration of 10 years Friends. S… read more
