Talisker 10 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky
After the barley has been mashed, it is fermented in the
distillery's wooden washbacks before being twice distilled through Talisker's
copper-pot stills. The stills are equipped with unique swan-shaped lye pipes
and worm tubs. As a result of this configuration, a portion of the vapor during
distillation condenses before reaching the cooler, and runs back into the still
for redistillation. This process gives Talisker Single Malt Whisky its signature,
full-bodied flavor profile.
Following distillation, Talisker 10 Year Old Single Malt Whisky is matured in
traditional oak casks for a minimum of ten years. The whisky has a slightly
smoky aroma, with hints of spice and salt. The aroma gives way to notes of
smoked meat, black pepper, cloves, honeyed oak and masa on the palate, and
ultimately leads to a slightly sweet and long finish.
