The Distiller's Edition of Talisker is richer than the regular bottling, wonderfully rounded and double-matured in ex-Amoroso casks with luscious, fruity, sweetness that perfectly complements the crisp, dry peat-smoke and familiar pepperiness of Talisker.
Nose: Remarkable; the stuff of legend. Very well focused. Wonderful grapey sultana sweetness. Clean, tempting. Palate: Magnificent; crisp peat softens to enormous richness, then wafts around sweet, roasted malt, leaving a heathland dryness. Wood controls the pepper; luscious, slightly oily sweetness; ripe, juicy fruit. Finish:
Deep cocoa, vanilla and lingering, earthy peat. Very engaging; great sweet-dry balance, led by sweetness.
