I’ve always been fond of Talisker. A Lovely, characterful malt from the Isle of Skye, I particularly like their 10 year old expression, over and above their older expressions which I feel lose that unique character. Some time ago I attended a Talisker tasting with a brand rep from Diageo’s importer here, and they had brought along a bottle of Talisker new make, mainly just to show what unaged whisky looks like. After some chatting and mild pestering they poured me some of the new make and I found it fantastic. Full of huge smoky character.
