Skye is the most northerly island of the Inner Hebrides and has a population of 10,000. Linked to the mainland by the 570m long Skye bridge (which is now free to use), it is a beautiful island and a popular tourist destination.
Talisker, located beside Loch Harport on the west coast of the island, is one of drinks giant Diageoís classic malts range. Taliskerís taste profile is peated (at around 18-22 ppm), peppery and reminiscent of the sea.
The Whisky Tasting Club Notes:
Nose: An electric storm of a malt, crackling with pepper and spice
Palate: It bounces around the palate like savory sherbert and flickers with cocoa and sweet barley
Retails for around £30-40
