Long time readers of iScotch will know that we (I) am huge Talisker fan. I’ve tried 4 different expressions and will try everything I can get my hands on for a good price (or at least, get out of the store without getting caught). Pitting the Distiller’s Edition against the 57° was a no brainer,
I’m not usually a huge fan of the super-high proofed whiskies – while it has its uses, the burn is a distraction from the flavour. I was pleasantly surprised by the 57° – it manages to remain a Talisker while bringing significant heat. Neat: Alcohol & peat – hot on the tongue, lots of burn.
I recently finished my bottle of Talisker 10y, the first bottle of scotch I ever bought. For about the same price to replace the 750ml size, I got the Talisker Scotch Whisky Collection boxed thing. It comes with 200ml bottles of the 10y, Distiller’s Edition and 57° expressions. Talisker 10y, Distiller’s Edition, 57° – 45.8%
