Talisker 6 Year Old 2008 vintage Island single malt Scotch whiskey. Single casl refill hogshead #10699 bottled Spring 2015 by Douglas Laing & Co. for the Provenance series.
Opens on the nose with a sweetly smoked character – burnt home baking in style – with a soft leather quality. The palate is spicy running to waves of tar & sweet liquorice. More tar & leather on the long finish with dark chocolate & liquorice lingering.

Talisker is an Islands malt whisky distillery equipped with five stills and has retained its traditional five round wooden worm tubs. There is an excellent range of official bottlings, including Talisker 10 Year Old and Distillers Edition supplemented by independent bottlings in the Secret Stills and Old Malt Cask ranges.
