With the Talisker Distillers Edition it is important to know that the whisky in the bottle still needs a lot of time and oxygen to give a harmonious overall picture. Every time I open a new Talisker Distillers Edition, I ask myself why I liked it so much ...? And once a third of the content has been used up and the bottle has been on the shelf for a few months, I'm overwhelmed every time how delicious it has turned out, which seemed hard to imagine after opening.
