Talisker Distillers Edition 2006 Single Malt Whisky 70cl 45.8% ABV
A Distillers Edition bottling of single malt from the Talisker distillery on the rugged Isle of Skye. This was distilled in 2006 and bottled in 2016 after a finishing period in Amoroso casks. The nose is extremely sharp and well-focussed; no lingering, rambling smoke but instead a wonderful sultana sweetness. The palate has crisp peat softens to enormous richness, with sweet, roasty malt and a heathery dryness. Sherry replaces the usual pepper with luscious, oily sweetness. The finish has deep cocoa notes, magnificent vanilla and lingering, earthy peat. Exemplary in balance between sweet and dry.
