This special, multi-award winning Talisker 1999 Distillers Edition is double matured in Amoroso wood.
There is near perfection in the bitter-sweet harmony experienced here, as familiar sweet smokiness of Talisker smooths out, not to pepper, but to rich, sweet, juicy fruit.
Talisker 1999 Distillers Edition Tasting Notes :-
Chestnut brown, this is a really full-bodied Talisker.
The nose is extremely sharp and well focussed, with a quite wonderful sultana sweetness.
The peat, crisp at first, softens to enormous richness in the mouth, then waft around the palate with sweet, roasted malt and a heathery dryness.
While the finish shows deep cacoa notes, magnificent vanilla and lingering, earthy peat.
Finally it is exemplary in balance between sweet and dry, with sweetness always having the slight edge.
