Talisker 8yr Old Particular

  • Distiller:


  • Bottler:

    Douglas Laing

  • ABV:


  • Age:

    8 Years

  • Intro:

    This is an independent bottling of spirit distilled at Talisker, and bottled by Old Particular for KLWines after 8 years of aging. Bottled at cask strength without coloring or filtering, this young Island spirit should be interesting. I tasted this dram blind and then got the reveal at a later time, so keep that in mind as you read through these notes. Let's dive in.

  • Nose:

    Brine, pepper, honey. Light fresh baked bread. Some sulfur, but not much at all. Lovely salted caramel.

  • Taste:

    Nice palate, but quite a bit of heat. Brash, powerful brine and salinity, along with some baked bread, light ash and some pepper. Honey, caramel and fresh berries round out the palate.

  • Finish:

    Long, bit of heat, but pretty nice. Vanilla, toffee, brine and caramel are dominant with a good dose of pepper to close things out.

  • Overall:

    This is really nice. A bit hot, so likely a bit young, but good balance and depth for its youth.

  • Score:
