The arrival of Diageo’s annual Special Releases is always a much-anticipated event, and this Talisker was part of the 2020 collection. The theme was Rare by Nature, inspired by the surroundings of each distillery, and all were bottled at cask strength. Excitingly, this maturation is the first of its kind from the Isle of Skye distillery, aged for eight years in casks which previously held pot-still Caribbean rum!
Two radically different seaside locations meet in one expertly-balanced whisky, with Talisker’s smoke, peppery spice and seaweed flavours bolstered by tropical fruit from the cask.

Nose

Flamed citrus peel and barbecue coals, with a salty sea breeze and dried seaweed balanced by cooked tropical fruit sweetness.

Palate

Fried caramelised banana and treacle leads into classic Talisker pepperiness, with smouldering bonfire embers in the background.

Finish

A warming finish of chilli chocolate and lingering aromatic smoke.

Wondering how to keep your Talisker bottle safe, and what to drink it out of? Well, when you treat yourself to a full bottle of Talisker 8 Year Old from the 2020 Special Releases, we’ll throw in (carefully) this branded tote bag and enamel mug! Just the thing for sipping the coastal whisky from, whether you’re on the blustery cliffs of Skye or snug on your sofa. We can already imagine a steaming Talisker hot chocolate or Hot Toddy looking deliciously smart in this!
