The annual release of the Talisker 25 Years Old is always a highly anticipated event. Introduced in 2004, this limited-edition single malt is one of the island distillery’s most popular expressions. This is the 2014 edition, bottled at 45.8%. Talisker 25 Years Old 2014 is fruity and mineral on the nose, with aromas of vanilla, cinnamon, liquorice, almonds, citrus, leather, tobacco and a hint of peat. The taste is sweet and slightly peaty, with notes of citrus, green apples, liquorice, roasted marshmallow, black pepper and salt, leading to a long, sweet and slightly bitter finish with hints of vanilla, pepper, salt, liquorice and peat. Only 6000 bottles have been released.
