Talisker Skye was introduced in early 2015, named after the beautiful island on which the distillery resides. This expression brings with it a more well-rounded and sweet flavour profile packed with fresh citrus, sweet smoke, peppery spice and traditional Talisker maritime notes. It's matured in a combination of refill and toasted American oak casks, with a slightly higher proportion of toasted casks.

Talisker Distillery was built in 1830 by Hugh and Kenneth MacAskill, beside Loch Harport on the island of Skye. The name comes from the Norse, "Thalas Gair", meaning "Sloping Rock" and, until 1928, Talisker used a triple distillation method typically associated with Irish whisky these days.
Nose: Sweet stuff, toffees and vanilla ice cream up front, almost grain-like. Becomes increasingly honeyed. There's a little coastal influence here too, just hints of a sweet Caol Ila perhaps, with very restrained smoke.
Palate: Honeyed toasted oak, sappy wood, only a little pepper and smoke, apple turnovers and hints of lemon and lime Opal Fruits. Fennel seeds.
Finish: Drying and slightly less sweet, hints of spice and smoke.
Overall: A more approachable, sweet Talisker.
