TALISKER 10 YEAR SINGLE MALT SCOTCH WHISKY
Region: Isle of Skye
What's So Special: The oldest working distillery on the Isle of Skye is set on the shores of Loch Harport with dramatic views of the Cuillins. Producing an alluring, sweet, full-bodied single malt is so easy to enjoy, and like Skye itself, so hard to leave.
Tastes Like: Picture being trapped in a room filled with smoke. Now picture loving every moment of it. That's Talisker 10 Year. A gorgeous Scotch with smoke for days.
How to Drink: Pair this straight with s'mores, prosciutto with smoked mozzarella, a damn fine cigar.
What the Pros Say: Whiskey Advocate - 90 Points: " 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."
