Winning bid: £920.00
Lot number: 084-1864

Talisker was founded by two brothers, Hugh and Kenneth MacAskill in 1830 and until 1928 practised triple distillation. The distillery was rebuilt after being destroyed by fire in November 1960, including commissioning identical stills to those that had been destroyed in the fire. In 1998 it was part of Diageo's Classic Malts original line up and in 2014 it became the 10th best selling single malt in the world.

A superb example of Talisker, with all the key characteristics, but richer. Very distinctive and extremely complex. Walnut in appearance and remarkably rich and chewy in body.

62% ABV / 70cl
