Talisker is the oldest Single Malt Scotch Whisky distillery made by the sea on the shores of the Isle of Skye, one of the most remote, rugged, yet beautiful landscapes in Scotland. Few whiskies tell the story of their origin better than Talisker. Its smell and taste instantly connect the drinker with the rugged environment – like a warm welcome from a wild sea. It’s a powerhouse; challenging but adored; once discovered rarely left.

Talisker's excellent 10 Year Old maritime malt, packaged with a pair of their round bottom 'rocking' tumblers - perfect for reenacting ship-board drinking or just for simply sharing a dram or two.

Talisker 10 Year Old, the stalwart of the Talisker family, is a powerful Single Malt Whisky, with a sea-salty nose, spicy complexity, smoky-sweet character and signature peppery finish with a warm afterglow.

Serving Suggestion: 
The warm, subtle smokiness of Talisker 10 Year Old should be sampled neat.

Region A classic Island whisky from the oldest distillery on Skye.
Appearance Brilliant gold.
Body Full and rich.
Nose Powerful peat-smoke with just a hint of the sea-water salt of fresh oysters, with a citrus sweetness.
Palate A rich dried-fruit sweetness, clouds of smoke, strong barley-malt flavours, warming and intense. Peppery at the back of the mouth.
Finish Huge, long, warming and peppery in the finish with an appetising sweetness.

Expert Reviews

Insights from some of the best in the business

A malt equivalent to The Rolling Stones Satisfaction: it's exciting and fulfilling no mater how many times you come to it, on one level it's mainstream, if slightly on the heavier and rockier side of the taste spectrum; on another there's an edgier and less safe edge to it. A rich body is decorated with pepper and peat.

Sukhinder Singh 2011, Whisky Magazine, Issue 95, p.102

Quite dense and smoky on the nose, with smoked fish, bladderwrack, sweet fruit and peat. Full-bodied and peaty in the mouthy; complex, with ginger, ozone, dark chocolate, black pepper and a kick of chilli in the long, smoky tail.

Gavin D Smith, Malt Whisky Yearbook 2015, p.175

Fresh, vibrant. Appetizingly briny, with notes of seaweed, fishnets, lemongrass, smoke, and damp peat. A bed of light toffee provides contrast and balance. It finishes with a knockout punch: powerfully peppery and salty. This whisky remains a beautifully dynamic and bold whisky.

John Hansell, Whisky Advocate Fall 2005

Another that should need no introduction. The thing to look for in Talisker, as with all smoky whiskies, is sweetness that gives the requisite balance to the drying effect of smoke. Underneath Talisker’s smoke, which ain't as all-pervading as Lagavulin, is a sweet pear-like quality. When young there are notes of the land: heather, moor, sweet seaweed, and a finish that has a distinctive cracked black pepper hit.
