Talisker Distillers Edition

Talisker is located on the remote Isle of Skye and has been there since 1830. They are now part of the Diageo stable of brands. They have several bottlings but this particular one spends the last few months of its ageing in amoroso casks. My bottle was distilled in 2005 and bottled in 2015.

Color: Dark amber. It has the prettiest color of any scotch I've drunk and it really sparkles in a crystal glass
Nose: You can tell that this whiskey was born near the sea from it's briny and seaweedy aroma
Palate: Smooth with a taste of salty peat
Finish: Long and warm

Again, here is a fine whiskey that is not even in its teen years. A great addition to your shelf.

Never been a real fan of Talisker. It's a pretty hard hit on the peat for me.
