Talisker is firmly establishe­d in the smoky and peaty camp. The medium-bodied whisky is aged in American oak hogshead and European oak casks and displays all the characters of a well-aged pour with smoke, dried oranges, iodine and seaweed on the nose. On the palate, it’s an unctuous start that builds to sweet caramel and spice notes and leads to a peppery drying finish. Located in the desolate and rugged Isle of Skye, Talisker distillery sits next to the shore and is fed by 21 pure water springs. It is also the only working distillery in Skye. $470, diageorare­andexcepti­onal.sg
