A.H. Wants You To Drink Some Scotch


Not just any ol’ kind of scotch but some really good stuff. It’s called Talisker and I approve of its quality and I recommend it for you and everyone you know. Just promise to drink responsibly and if we ever meet, I hope you offer me a glass of it over rocks.

Together with Lagavulin, Talisker represented a heavier side of the single  malt spectrum. Their barley (which is malted at Glen Ord) isn’t as peaty as Lagavulin’s (the Talisker ‘recipe’ requires a peating level of +/- 22 PPM) but
the whisky still makes a strong impression on most novices in the world of  single malt Scotch. This was especially true in the 1990’s when Islay malts like Ardbeg and Caol Ila were not available as proper single malt ‘brands’.

Got to this site and read a little about it’s brewing and craft and see if it is something you’d like to try.

Deep and stormy like the ocean crashing over the rocky shores of its island distillery, Talisker is the only Single Malt Scotch Whisky rugged enough to call the Isle of Skye its home.

  1. You just mentioned my two favorite Scotch whiskies. I love Talisker (have you tried their Distiller’s Edition? It is nothing short of phenomenal!) and I love Lagavulin, both the 16 and the Distiller’s Edition. We have the same tastes in Scotch, AH! 😉
