Talisker 1986 Distillers Edition / Inaugural Release
For a long time, Talisker was the sole distillery on Scotland’s iconic Isle of Skye. Renowned for the quality of its output, the distillery has rarely changed hands, joining what has now become Diageo back in 1916. Despite this, releases were not the most common. An 8 year old was bottled officially and Gordon & MacPhail produced what are now classic and sought after vintage bottlings under official license from the distillery. When a 10 year old expression became a founding pillar of the classic malts range, the popularity of the distillery exploded, and it is now one of the most revered and exported in Scotland.
The Distillers Edition range are cask finished variations on the Classic Malts. The earliest release of this double matured series from the Isle of Skye, and was finished in Jerez Amoroso cask wood.
Distilled 1986 and bottled 1999.
