The Isle of Skye is renowned for its rich, varied landscape. From its serene shores to the jagged peaks of the Cuillin mountains. Talisker Skye is the distillery’s ode to these appealing contrasts, with a smoky sweetness, maritime notes and a spicy edge. On the nose glorious fresh oranges develop into soft mango. Maritime air with seaweed, driftwood and salt continue beneath. The body is softly textured and sweet at first, coating and tongue tingling, with light smoke. It quickly becomes more pungent and savoury with a hot spiciness. The finish is drier and of medium-length, with a smooth aftertaste in which light peaty burnt embers can be found.
