Talisker bottle and box

Talisker distillery’s first-ever release of a 45-year-old Single Malt Scotch whisky, unearths new, resilient depths of the Talisker character. Revealing unexplored richness, complexity and a unique untamed flavour which is attributed to the whisky travelling deeper into the casks to obtain spicier and sweeter aromas from the American Oak ex-Bourbon barrels. Finished in ice-fractured casks to unearth a new depth of flavour, this exquisitely rare new Single Malt Scotch whisky from Talisker is the final release in a series of adventures in wild whisky making.

Tasting Notes

Product Appearance iconIcon to highlight the product tasting note appearance section


Glowing amber. Exceptional beading.

Product Nose IconIcon to highlight the product tasting note nose section


Rich, dry and mellow overall, with a light peppery prickle at first. Clear maritime top notes speak of tide-line seaweed, sand dunes, iodine; their mineral companions suggest slaked lime and salt crystals. Behind them a faint dried fruit complex with hints of fig, sultana, or prune lends body and richness. Light smoke threads the background, touched by aromatic sandalwood. A drop of water tends to close the aromas yet adds richness to the fruity sweetness, with notes of fruit salad coming through.

Full, rich.

Product Palate IconIcon to highlight the product tasting note palate section


The texture is all-enveloping; smooth and mouth-filling. On first sip the taste starts richly sweet, while it becomes delightfully salty, smoky and increasingly peppery mid-palate; even at this age there is still a fine chilli ’catch’. A dash of water reduces the peppery note slightly and there is more attractive saltiness, suggesting salted caramels.

Product Finish IconIcon to highlight the product tasting note finish section


Very long, with a trace of candle wax in a glorious chilli pepper effect that grows and glows in the aftertaste. Saltier at reduced strength and slightly less peppery, now with faint scented smoke in the aftertaste.
