A classic must and benchmark whisky of the range, Talisker 10 Years Old is a Single Malt of the Isle of Skye exhaling deep notes of iodine and spices. It belongs to the famous Classic Malts Selection. A wonderful malt, that indisputably possesses a wealth of style and character, over a powerfully mastered structure and maritime influence. Also reveals hues of pepper and smoke.
Its peaty nose is paired with an intense and silky mouthfeel sensation, evolving towards a bursting finale that lingers in the mouth and the mind.

A few miles away from the west coast of the Highlands sits the Isle of Skye, with its rugged coastline and windswept peat lands.
The small coastal town of Carboast, on the shores of Loch Harport and on the foothills of the Cuillins, is nestled in a region battered by the winds and sea breeze, Talisker. This is where the only one distillery of the island chose to settle – one of the most prestigious and isolated of all.
Back in 1825, Hugh and Kenneth Mac Askill decided to establish themselves on the Isle of Skye. They quickly grew fond of their adoptive region, and rented a plot in Carbost to build, in 1830, the Talisker distillery. Laden with salt, lava and peat, the distillery bottles exceptional Single Malts, known for their spicy, powerful character.
Because of the unique character and quality of Talisker whiskies, the distillery features in the Classic Malts Selection. Created more than 20 years ago, this selection recognises Single Malts crafted in the tradition of iconic distilleries, and offers the most impressive whisky styles Scotland has to offer.
