A 31-year-old Talisker from the last 6 casks that showed an unusual less peaty, more rounded character, specially put aside in 1988 to mature. A Talisker full of vitality with sweet, smoky and peppery flavours.

Bottled: 12.12.19 | Refill American Oak Casks
Number Bottled: 721 | Carbost, Isle Of Skye 

One of eight bottlings in the Prima & Ultima Collection.

"In 1988 something almost miraculous happened at Talisker. A small group of casks showed a less peaty, more rounded character than usual when we nosed the new make spirit. Remembering how special those casks were, we reserved the last six for this unique release; just one in a thousand of the casks filled that year.

The more subtle flavours evident on our first nosing are now all superbly integrated; sweet yet peppery, fruity yet salty. With every nuance in perfect harmony, this extra-mature expression from a select handful of refill American Oak hogsheads is rich in roaring contrasts. At first taste, there is a rolling, bold and peppery tide of flavour, which gently ebbs into a wonderful fruity depth with just a wisp of smoke. Rich in texture and smooth, it is intense and lightly sweet, beautifully binding together a gentle saltiness, a hint of cigar-box and a trace of chilli pepper in one glorious dram.

One sip takes me back to days spent at Talisker, where the winds blew and the sea-loch was silver grey, and I am reminded of what I have always known; ‘Made by the Sea’, a mature Talisker is much more than it may seem at first sight."

- Dr Jim Beveridge OBE
