What's in a name? Talisker 1999 Amoroso Finish - Distillers Edition whisky is called whisky because it's produced in Scotland. Were it from America it would be spelled Talisker 1999 Amoroso Finish - Distillers Edition whiskey, rather than whisky.
Only reason it doesn't get 10 out of 10 is because the 1998 distillers edition was so much better. Still a beautiful whiskey, but you won't find any nowadays.

Peaty and fruity, no bitterness and long as a day without a woman, very well done, right there challenging one of my Top 3, the Yamazaki 18.

I first found Talisker back in 1976 when i was working at the Kirkstile Inn Loweswater.
I was 18 then and my interest in whisky started. I have roamed around many distilleries and tasted there products but I always come back to Talisker. My son bought me a bottle of Talisker 1999 Amoroso Finish when he was there recently and I have refound my initial passion for this exquisite Brand. Nothing else compares as far as I'm concerned.

deserves patience. disliked it first comparing it to it´s bold brother, the 10yo.
well,that was only the first quarter bottle´s annoyed experience.
meanwhile this pal has not only outrun the 10er (by far), but has established itself as part of the absolute top in my personal tastings-rank.
the champagne amongst the malts.
