In 1976 Scotland basked in a once in a lifetime heatwave which made the stills run hot, increasing copper contact, creating this highly unusual Talisker. Standing as the oldest-ever release from Talisker, this forty six year old whisky was rested in a single puncheon gaining further complexity to this exceptionally rare malt.

Tasting Notes

Deep amber. Outstanding large beading, excellent legs.

Product Body IconIcon to highlight the product tasting note body section


Medium to full.

Product Nose IconIcon to highlight the product tasting note nose section


A mellow feel, with very light prickle perhaps just hinting at that Talisker spice. The aromas are complex and reserved, with fragrant and lightly oily top notes backed by a salty sea-breeze and a whiff of new hessian sacks, and beneath this a sweet suggestion of toffee. Even a drop of water reduces the complexity, as it releases a hint of shoreline rock pool and a thread of volcanic smoke.

Product Palate IconIcon to highlight the product tasting note palate section


Ultra-smooth, oily and slightly waxy in texture, the taste sweet to start, with saltiness, white pepper-spice and subtle smokiness, complete with a familiar peppery kick at the back, all combining to make this an experience to savour throughout. Thoroughly confident in character, it is easy to enjoy straight. A little water raises the sweetness at first, and cools the palate overall, though the pepper and smoke still come through.

Product Finish IconIcon to highlight the product tasting note finish section


Long, warming and sweet-smoky, with a lingering mouth-cooling aftertaste. More of this menthol-like effect is noticeable at reduced strength.
