about this product

The Singleton Rare By Nature 17 Year Old
Single Malt Scotch Whisky 55.1% Abv, The Highlands

Talisker was the first distillery licensed on Skye and remains the island’s oldest working distillery. Famous for a full-bodied, rich character and powerful pepper finale, it's made by the sea, like the oyster beds that teem with life in the clear waters of the island’s west coast.

'Pure character from a first-ever release matured only in refill American oak hogsheads.'

Tasting Notes

APPEARANCE
Golden, with greenish lights. Good beading.

NOSE
A light nose-feel with some prickle. The top notes are sweet and maritime, with hints of molasses and crystalline sugar vying with dry seaweed, crystal salt and iodine, then ‘pear drop’ boiled fruit sweets below, on a smoky base with traces of charred meat. A drop of water softens the attack, increasing the maritime character and reducing the sweet notes, while introducing a hint of smoke.

BODY
Medium.

PALATE
A soft, smooth texture and a big taste; salty and especially, lightly sweet, before the full-on Talisker pepperiness takes over. Very drying. Water rounds it, softening the rich sweetness and bringing up the pepper, but the profile is similar.

FINISH
Long, hotly peppery and drying, finishing sweet and smoky with the typical Talisker chilli-pepper ‘catch’ in the swallow. With water more rounded but similar, leaving a thread of smoke on the tongue.
