Tasting notes:

This expression has been inspired by the eight-year-old Talisker bottlings of the 1980’s. Having aged in first fill ex-Bourbon American oak hogsheads, the cask strength bottling has a rich amber colour, with a sweet and peppery aroma. On the palate, it is lightly salty with a cranberry tartness and gentle peat smoke flavour, before a long, balanced finish.
