Today’s museum post is of a bottle of Talisker that I bought back in November. Talisker is similar to Ardbeg, Lagavulin, and Laphroaig in that it is distilled, aged, and bottled by the sea, but unlike the other three (which are practically down the road from each other on Islay), Talisker is made further up north on the Isle of Skye. It is the only distillery on the Isle of Skye.
It is difficult to believe that it has been several months since I’ve enjoyed and finished this bottle. Due to budget constraints, I’ve cut back significantly on indulging, and at times I’ve even thought that maybe I’m done with Scotch just like I’m done with aquariums (Scotch is hard liquor, after all).
When I think back to the peatiness, seaweediness, and sweetness of this dram, I think that I must be mistaken. Enjoy this museum post.
