Insider knowledge: Talisker 1999 Amoroso Finish - Distillers Edition whisky is named whisky by virtue of the fact it's from Scotland. If distilled in America the spelling would be Talisker 1999 Amoroso Finish - Distillers Edition whiskey, as opposed to whisky.
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.
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.
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.
