Talisker Whisky

Talisker (from the Norse translation of 'Thalas Gair' or 'Sloping Rock') is the only single malt whisky made on the Isle of Skye.

At a distillery founded in 1830 by Hugh and Kenneth MacAskill at Carbost, only some three short miles down the road from the Hotel, this world-famous whisky has a character as unchanged as the Cuillin Hills in whose shadow it is made.  

Talisker is a whisky that is uniquely made in exact replicas of old pot stills, thus by preserving a method of distillation found nowhere else.

The result is a full-bodied malt with a smooth beginning, a growing intensity and a long warming finish.  

A robust malt to enjoy rather than sip cautiously.

For malt whisky devotees everywhere, a dram of the rich golden Talisker is regarded as one of the classics. 

And at the Taigh Ailean Hotel, this is just one of many special malt whiskies waiting for you to sample.

Just ask your hosts at the Hotel for their recommendations, or for the opening times and details of the guided tours at the Distillery.

So - here's to a dram of Talisker ...

View down Loch Harport and across to the Cuillins.
