Deep, mature in nature, and very complex. Notes of polished leather, maple syrup, and dark pit fruit, with suggestions of tobacco smoke, wood shavings, and unsweetened chocolate. References to fine old bourbon and ultra-matured pot-still rum provide intrigue. Proof that Japan produces some outstanding, distinctive whiskies. Nicely done!
The Suntory whiskies are handcrafted at Japan’s oldest distillery, built by the founder of Suntory–Shinjiro Torii–in 1923. This was named “Best in Class” at the International Wine & Spirits Competition in 2006 and awarded a Double Gold Medal at the 2005 San Francisco World Spirits Competition. This will wow any fan of single malt whisky with its spicy cherry, date, toffee and orange notes and its long, dry finish.
The only Single Malt Scotch Whisky from The Isle Of Skye
A soft, smoky nose introduces an enticing, sweet taste. Full bodied and smooth, this muscular malt also has a robust, deep intensity. It has a long, richly warming finish.

Single Malt Scotch Whisky From The Isle Of Skye
Finished in Amoroso casks, this is quite different to the standard-issue 10 year-old, with an extra layer of sweetness that may not appeal to some Talisker purists but is well worth a look for those intersted in trying a Talisker with an extra dimension.
