Tasting Notes

Isle of Skye is a 50/50 vatting of single malt whisky distilled at Talisker—the oldest distillery on the Isle of Skye and the only legally operating distillery on the island up until 2017—and grain whisky from Speyside; this is a much larger proportion of single malt than what is found in most blended Scotches. These spirits—both of exceptional character—are combined and rested in oak for an additional 6 months prior to bottling. This marriage results in an 8-year-old whisky with light peat and notes of barley and crème anglaise on the nose. The dram then exhibits nutty, spicy, fruitcake on the palate with a touch of sherry. Enjoyable on its own, Isle of Skye is also a versatile cocktail component. 43% ABV
