Talisker 25 Year Old Single Malt Whisky 750ml

SKU #1082548 Whisky Advocate

 Previously only available as part of Diageoís annual Special Releases program, and now bottled at the classic Talisker strength of 45.8%, instead of cask strength. Initially salty, then sweet and spicy on the nose, with summer berries, heather honey, and an earthy note, plus subtle peat. Spicy and drying on the slightly waxy palate, with licorice, aniseed, and prominent peat embers. The finish is medium in length, peppery, and relatively tannic. (Vol. 21, #3)

K&L Notes

Typically this bottling comes in at a very high proof, but the 2011 edition is bottled at Talisker's traditional proof 45.8%. Either way, it's an incredible deal for one of my absolute favorite distilleries. There is no question Talisker is one of Scotland's true gems. It hasn't received the incredible acclaim of superstars like Lagavulin and Ardbeg, but it should absolutely be considered in the top tier of the world's distilleries. Serge Valentine's Whiskyfun.com rates Talisker among the "Grand Cru Classe" of Single Malt (i.e. Lag, Ardbeg, Brora, and Glenugie). This is rare company, but because the public knows less about Talisker it does not command quite the same prices as its more popular brothers. $200 for 25 years of one of the world's finest distilleries? Indeed this seems to good to be true. Only 5946 bottles of this unusual and rare malt were bottled from refill casks. (David Othenin-Girard, K&L Spirits Buyer)
