700ML // 45.8% ABV
A must have for any Talisker fan. One of our all-time favourite malts, Talisker 18 Years Old is a masterpiece from one of Scotland’s greatest distilleries, and was named ‘Best Single Malt Whisky in the World’ at the World Whiskies Awards in 2007. Stunning balance of peat, spice and sweetness.
This is an early bottling which is no longer available.
Nose: Clean and fresh. There is a mixed fruity sweetness with a spicy character. The peat and smoke rise with notes of perfume and thick oak. Hints of Calvados and a touch of acidity with ground ginger.
Palate: Thick and rich and full-bodied. Notes of spicy, peppery oak, espresso beans and wood smoke. A little allspice creeps in, there is a certain zesty character lurking somewhere. The spice builds and builds with utter intent.
Finish: Long and with peppery oak.
