Leasing Macleod land at Carbost, the MacAskills built Talisker Distillery in 1830 against the fiery protestations of the abstainer and former parish Minister, the Rev.

However, it wasn't long before their elixir was commented on more favourably, by no less a writer than Robert Louis Stevenson.

Exactly what I expected.

Wine Chateau got this to me very quickly considering the circumstances, and the bottle is precisely what I expected. It's a peaty island scotch with smoky hints and a peppery finish. Similar to Lagavulin 16, but the Lagavulin is far sweeter. I prefer to pair this with a meal whilst the Lagavulin 16 I sip neat, alone.

Talisker 18 Year Single Malt

My wife and I just love the nose and well balanced peat and satisfying flavors that linger on the palate with each sip. The extra years add remarkably when compared to 10- or 12-year aging.
