As our fable goes, on the rugged Isle of Skye stood Talisker, an enduring distillery with a fierce protector of an otherworldly nature: the ferocious Sea Fury. Beneath the smoky, mist-draped surface of the island's dark waters, this leviathan of the loch lay in wait, keeping watch over its ancient home, imparting the whisky that leaves its shores with its powerful and unmistakably brine-licked character.
On Loch Harport's serpentine banks, battered by Skye;s merciless winds, Talisker still stands proud against all odds, The powerful landscapes that surround it are eclipsed only by the stories they've inspired- both shaped by the elemental forces of nature herself. But be warned: this is not a dram for any old wandering soul, this is a whisky for the wild at heart - a whisky Made by the Sea.
This furious spirit writhes with cereal aromas, soon enveloped by briny seaweed and mountain smoke. The soft oily texture smoothly insinuates itself, carrying forward a bold taste with licks of savoury salt, light sweetness and pronounced smoke. From our most heavily peated reserves, the elemental power of the sea is acclaimed, finishing long and lingering. The smoke endures; this sea-monster breathes fire.
