Talisker 57° North Single Malt Scotch Whisky 700ml
Originally confined to the duty-free market, the non-age statement Talisker 57° North has blasted clear of its shackles and is now belting privileged palates around the country. Bottled at 57% ABV to reflect the labels name and homage to the 57° North latitude of the distillery on the Isle of Skye, this American Oak matured Talisker is a veritable powerhouse!
Nosed neat the power is menacing; quintessential Talisker peppered-oak lies and a small pod of vanilla. Tasting brings spice, smoke, peat and a hot woodiness that makes your ears bulge, then coolness, then heat again. Released the clean Talisker character; sweet, aromatic, tongue coating, well balanced, warming, great swallow.

Perhaps the most apt description we've happened across thus far... "There's a subtle citrus fragrance and a whiff of the ocean in this too! The only way to describe it is to imagine French kissing Fidel Castro while some salty old sea dog tells bawdy jokes in your ear."
Tasting Note: Clean and intense, with light smoke. Creamy toffee balanced by fruit. Hints of seaweed, heather blossom and vanilla. Sweet to start with smoke and tar. Tingling with the signature Talisker pepperiness at the finish.
