Talisker 10 Single Malt Scotch Whiskey
LIKE SLURPING OYSTERS AT A BONFIRE—BUT IF ONLY THOSE OYSTERS WERE MADE OF SCOTCH.
Is there a better 10 year Scotch out there? Probably not. Certainly not if you lean toward the complexity of flavors that come with island Scotch. Brine. Smoke. Fruit. Wood. Pepper. And some kind of magic spell. Naturally, from the oldest distillery on the Island of Skye.
In 1825, Hugh MacAskill of Eigg acquired Talisker House and the north end of the Minginish peninsula on the rugged, beautiful Isle of Skye Five years later, he and his brother had built what was to become one of the world’s most popular distilleries on the shore of Loch Harport. In fact, by as early as 1898, Talisker was one of the best selling malt whiskies in the UK. Through fire, war and financial crises, this northern outpost – Skye’s oldest distillery – has remained strong: producing consistently fine whiskies which, once tried, are rarely forgotten.
