Taste-wise, the Distiller’s Edition sits in the same place in comes in the box – right in the middle. Its difficult to describe it without comparing it to the 57° or the 10y: its fuller than the 10y, but not as intense as the 57°, warmer and spicier, while less peaty.
Each lot is numbered, this one being TD-S:5LX, but as you can see if you click the link, there’s no official information from Talisker/Diageo/Malts.com, only reviews. It appears to be simply to distinguish different Editions Distiller. The specific pedigree of the whimsically named TD-S:5LX is as an 11y double matured scotch expression.
Neat: leather, almost beefy in the nose, warm and sweet with a fair burn.
With Ice: spiciness remains.
