This Talisker is a record malt. In fact, he won the medal of gold at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition in 2008 as best Single Malt in its category and best whiskey in absolute. It is the first aged 18 years produced by the distillery.
Aging in American and European oak barrels makes it soft, without affecting its powerful character. An example of extraordinary balance where sweetness and vigor mix with one perfect ripening. The beginning is sweet and then immediately made up your mind. Rich and intense, a balance between smoked and sweet hints of candied fruit and honey, tobacco, licorice, cinnamon. Warm finish of spices and black pepper.
