Island Single Malt Scotch Whisky 70cl / 45.8% £360 (£500 per litre, plus £10 for engraving)
  • Talisker 30 Year Old / Bot.2012 Presentation
  • The 2012 release of Talisker's consistently excellent 30 Year Old. Presented in orange livery (rather than the usual blue), this yielded 3,186 bottles at the distillery's traditional strength of 45.8%. Elegant and complex, this has the classic Talisker hallmarks of pepper and smoke, but in a softer and subtler way. Superb.

Tasting Notes
by Stuart Peskett

  • Nose: Distinctly Talisker, but elegant and beguiling. Maritime saltiness, a touch of cured meat, bitter oranges, a pleasant whiff of smoke and a subdued pepperiness.
  • Palate: Plenty of clean salinity at first – this is a lip-smacking whisky! Then come added layers of complexity, with Seville-orange marmalade, crushed black pepper, a slight meatiness and evocative smoke. Rich but refreshing.
  • Finish: The soft smoke and elegant fruitiness linger for a very long time.
  • Comment: What is fascinating about this dram is how different it is from younger examples, but that it has so much in common with the 10 and 18 Year Old. The trademark Talisker note of pepper and smoke is there, but everything is softer, mellower, more drawn out. A fascinating whisky, and one that rewards you the longer you contemplate it.
