|Remark :||(A Classic Malt of Scotland).
A 10 year old and the only malt produced on Skye. Its seaweedy, smoky nose and sweet maltiness is perfectly complimented by its spicy, long finish.
Talisker is the only distillery on the Isle of Skye. The taste of the whisky reminds you of its place of birth.
From the Whisky pilot by Uniqum Systems :
The only distillery on the Isle of Skye is the Talisker Distillery which was founded in 1831. The distillery was originally situated at Snizort, to the north of the island, but was closed and mysteriously moved. It has five stills. During its operational life it has been rebuilt and modernised a couple of times the last being in 1960-62 after the stillhouse was destroyed by fire on 22 November 1960. The name comes from a farm 6 miles away. The owner in 1880 was imprisoned after being found guilty of selling whisky that was supposedly maturing in the warehouse, in fact the warehouse did not even exist!
The make was triple distilled until 1928.
Situated in a gentle bowl which forms a lonely, very sheltered glen on the west coast of Skye.
Water comes from a burn on the slopes of Cnoc nan Speireag (Hawk Hill), cooling water comes from the Carbost Burn.
