Proof66 Notes

Talisker is "made by the sea" at Loch Harport and they claim Robert Louis Stevenson called Talisker "the king of all drinks." They draw their water from underground springs with Glen Ord malt smoked and dried over peat. They suggest drinking with a bit of water but no ice.

The Distiller's Edition is first aged in bourbon casks and then a second maturation in amaroso sherry casks.

I was lucky to find a 1992 vintage. It's quite good, but after having a dram side by side with the 18 year the '92 really failed to shine. The tannins were already noticeably heavy in the '92, but after having the superbly balanced 18 year they became that much more glaringly obvious. Other than that I think diggler's first sentence nails it efficiently; Peaty, toffee, salty, and delicious.

Peaty, toffee, salty, and delicious. Just a touch sweeter than the Ten y/o. This bottle did not last long at my house.
