Talisker Skye is the latest release from the windswept distillery on the Isle of Skye. The liquid has been made from a combination of toasted and refill American oak casks to accentuate the citrus and sweeter notes of Talisker, whilst delivering the gentle smoky and salty flavours that are so unique to whiskies from the distillery.
Appearance: Bright 18 carat gold with polished copper lights.
Nose: Starts gently with the glorious citrus-sweetness of fresh oranges. A touch of water tames the spice and smoke, but the aroma remains maritime.
Body: Medium yet softly textured.
Palate: Soft and sweet at first with very light smoke.
Finish: Long and warming, yet also fresh, with a big, peppery finale and a late trace of sweet smoke.
