Talisker 8 Year Old Special Releases 2020 Description

From a malt rich in maritime character, this adventurous release of Talisker is the first ever to be finished in pot-still Caribbean rum casks. They have enlivened the marine scents and peppery punch of this Skye distillery’s colourful character with the rich, dark and exotic sweetness of warmer climes. Part of the Diageo Special Releases 2020 range, this expression is highly-limited.

The nose feels light, with signature sweet and maritime notes forming the top layer; molasses and demerara sugar emerge from beneath and boast the rum cask influence. Expect an initial soft and smooth texture, before the Talisker pepperiness takes over the palate; a touch of water will soften the rich sweetness. A long, hotly pepper and drying finish lingers on the tongue.

Knowledge Bar

Found in 1830, Talisker was the first distillery license on Skye and remains the island’s oldest working distillery. Famous for a full-body, rich character and powerful peppery finale, it is make by the sea, like the oyster beds that teem with life in the clear waters of the island’s west coast.
