If Talisker did as many releases as Highland Park, I’d be at the front of the queue wanting to try them. One review on Whiskybase mentions the clear presence of sherry and peat in this Distiller’s Edition, which might suggest a mix of Speyside and Islay flavours. But Talisker doesn’t exactly sit on the fence between two great whisky regions. There’s no confusion about the Talisker taste. It’s unique in its own right. A perfect harmony of some of the finest elements of the Scotch whisky craft.
Although Ralfy’s review is for a previous version of the Distiller’s Edition, I’ve added it for the insight he gives. The Whiskybase rating of 88/100 is one of the highest I’ve seen on the site. The Talisker 10yo scores 85.85/100, so clearly the Distiller’s Edition is well favoured.
