Talisker distillery is an island single malt Scotch whisky distillery based in Carbost, Scotland on the Minginish Peninsula on the Isle of Skye. The distillery is operated by Diageo, and Talisker's 10 year old whisky has been nominated as part of their Classic Malts series. The brand is considered a premium Single Malt Whisky. The nose is softly salty, with peppery spices and a hint of waxy apple peels. The palate is more orchard fruit sweetness balanced by iodine and smoke. The finish is salted butter, sea breeze, and a smidge of sultana.
