The Isle of Skye is renowned for its rich, varied landscape – from its soft, serene shores to the dark, jagged peaks of the Cuillin mountains. Talisker Skye is the distillery’s ode to these appealing contrasts, with a smoky sweetness, maritime notes and a spicy edge.
Appearance: Bright 18 carat gold with polished copper lights.
Nose: The first glorious citrus sweetness of fresh oranges develops into soft mango. Maritime air with seaweed, driftwood and salt continue under.
Palate: Soft and sweet at first, coating and tongue tingling, with light smoke. Quickly becomes more pungent and savoury with a hot spiciness.
Finish: Drier and of medium-length, with a lasting, smooth aftertaste, in which light peaty burnt embers can be found.
Alcohol Content: 45.8% | 70cl
Review: “Seriously impressive. The combination of oils and soot stick to the palate” – Chris Goodrum 2015, Whisky Magazine, Issue 127
