Talisker 10 Year Old Map Label 1990s

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.

This is the first iteration of said 10 year old, introduced in 1988 in what is now affectionately referred to as the "map label" livery. It replaced the 8 year old expression that had previously been marketed in the Ascot Malt Cellar, introduced by DCL in 1982 and considered the spiritual predecessor to the Classic Malts.
