Talisker 18 Year Old


One of our all-time favourite malts, Talisker 18 Year Old is a masterpiece from one of Scotland’s greatest distilleries, and is a former ‘Best Single Malt Whisky in the World’ at the World Whiskies Awards.

A stunning balance of peat, spice, and sweetness.

Tasting Notes

  • NOSE

    Rich and fruity – Victoria plums, greengages, perhaps dried orange peel – with some butterscotch or rum toffee and a thread of smoke behind. The smoke soon advances into the foreground and the toffee note is joined by a light mintiness. With water maritime characteristics emerge – dry boat varnish, and edible seaweed. Still sweet; now with notes of iodine and the smokiness of an un-struck match.

  • BODY

    Full. Pleasant, smooth.


    Sweet in front, then more assertive, with a whiff of smoke. The overall effect is warming. The development is towards smoke, coal tar, and toffee.


    Medium length. Talisker’s characteristic chilli ‘catch’ in the finish is subtly present in the aftertaste.
