Talisker 2009 Cask Strength 8 Year Old Limited Edition
One of the 2018 special releases from Diageo, this is an 8 year old Talisker. Distilled on the Isle of Skye in 2009 and bottled at cask strength from 'deep charred' ex-bourbon casks.
For a long time, Talisker was the sole distillery on Scotland’s iconic Isle of Skye. Renowned for the quality of its output, the distillery has rarely changed hands, joining DCL (now Diageo) back in 1916. Despite this, releases were not the most common. An 8 year old was bottled officially and Gordon & MacPhail produced what are now classic and sought after vintage bottlings under official license from the distillery. When a 10 year old expression became a founding pillar of United Distillers’ Classic Malts range in 1988, the popularity of the distillery exploded, and it is now one of the most revered and exported in Scotland.
