Talisker 8yo SR2021

One of the superb selection of whiskies from Diageo's 2021 Special Releases, this expression is a Talisker single malt which has matured for eight years. It's a bold and vibrant expression, having been matured in heavily peated refill casks, meaning this one packs a peaty punch – though you'll also find plenty of mouth-watering fruit notes in there too. The theme of Diageo's 2021 Special Releases is Legends Untold, and the bottlings all feature references to stories (real and imagined) surrounding the distillery. Given Talisker's coastal home on the isle of Skye, it should come as no surprise to see a rather imposing sea monster upon its label!

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose Sweet notes initially, vanilla and sponge cake and then bonfires on the beach with salty seaweed notes. There’s stone fruit fruitiness here too.

Palate Lots of black pepper with smoke, heather and honey notes and peaches.

Finish Black pepper and chilli with a little caramel. Long and fiery.

Reviews for Talisker 8 Year Old (Special Release 2021)
An Improvement on the 2020 release & seriously salty
Sweet vanilla indeed with well-done steak and salty on the nose. Taste has more of the same elements developing to a smoky finish. Really makes the mouth water with the saltiness. Enjoyed it a bit more than the 2020 release. In a way it is very simple (although I only had a small sample), but worth considering if you like that sea-spray Talisker signature.
