Don’t confuse this with the most recent, more widely-available release (2012 release at 45.8%) - this is an entirely different beast!

This is the 2009 special release of 30 year old from the only distillery on the Isle of Skye. Not a lot of lead-in required here - it’s a great malt from a great distillery at a great age. As you can imagine, this one is a killer.

Peat, pepper and soft fruits work together here in one of those inexplicably awesome combinations like chocolate and chilli… A little bit of heat paired with a little bit of sweet is magic.

And for any out there that want to contest that older isn’t usually better…well…try this against the 10 year old and let us know!

Nose: Peaches. Buckets of peaches. Smoke, but very soft. Chocolate of three kinds: white, dark and milk. Pepper, of course…this is Talisker, after all. Salt. This is very soft and restrained on the peat notes. Great fruits here. Kinda like canned fruit cocktail, cherries n’ all.

Palate: Starts off creamy, but dries out fairly quickly. Never hits the depths of tannic dry-mouth, but definitely leaves the sides of the mouth a little puckered. Much salt and pepper. The fruits are still here. Melon and some borderline tropical notes. The peach is less prevalent, but still there and very pleasant.

Thoughts: A beautiful old salty dog of a Talisker. In short…exceptional.
