Description
The island of Skye is an interesting example from the anthropological point of view, as its original population, the Pitti, was first integrated with the Celts and later with the Scots, giving rise to the tribal organization known then as the clan . But the island is also famous for the goodness of the whiskeys produced, especially for the excellent Talisker spirits, defined by a 16th century merchant the 'Champagne of Skye'

HISTORY AND COMPANY

Talisker is an ancient distillery located in Carbost, and is the only distillery on the magical Isle of Skye, in Scotland as well as being one of the most renowned exponents of the Island Single Malt Scotch Whiskey. Talisker Distillery was built in 1830 by Hugh and Kenneth MacAskill and underwent a first expansion and renovation in 1900. Initially the whiskey was produced with a triple distillation, while starting from the 1930s it began to be processed with a double distillation, a more conventional method. The distillery was destroyed by fire in 1960. The distillery is now owned by the Diageo distribution company and is managed by United Distillers and Vintners. The current owners have succeeded in replicating the five original stills, characterized by the presence of classic serpentines in place of the more modern and less fascinating condensers, therefore today the whiskey is processed with the same distillation process of the past, keeping the tradition of the 'intact 900. Talisker Scotch Whiskey was the favorite of great writers such as Robert Louis Stevenson and Henry Morton Vollam. Among the peculiar characteristics of this Skye Scotch whiskey there is a definite use of peat and for its salty and almost spicy scents. Among the other particular characteristics of Talisker there is the particular turbidity of the malt that brings the phenolic levels to be higher than the average which is reflected in the particular taste of this single malt much loved by the enthusiasts and that surprises the occasional drinker not used to a such a peculiar taste profile. The water used, coming from the Cnoc nan Speireag, is itself particularly charged with peat. Its great character has made it an important component for blenders over the years, above all Johnnie Walker, who uses it significantly for his Johnnie Walker Green Label 15 years of pure malt. It is also an essential component of the other classic island product, the Drambuie.
