Talisker 30 year old 2011 Limited Edition Isle of Skye Single Malt Whisky 750ml

SKU #1082549

Most people don't realize that the United States is pretty much the only country (with the exception of South Africa) that sells liquor in 750ml bottles. The rest of the world uses 700ml universally. That means every single import that comes to the US needs to have its own custom package, bottle, label and approval from the government. That's a lot of work for something that will sell out in the UK anyway. This explains why the limited release whiskies from Diageo are not making it overseas with the frequency they once used to. Demand at home in the UK is more than enough to exhaust what limited supplies of Talisker 30 are available. One of the great aged values in the world, the older Taliskers are truly special. Fruity citrus, soft oily textures, hints of salt and sea brine, with wood and chili spices bringing up the rear. I hope we'll continue to see older Diageo malts in California, but after the small lot we saw in 2011, I'm not too optimistic. We got one bottle of Port Ellen 30 this year. We're lucky we got any of this! (David Driscoll, K&L Spirits Buyer)
