Mark’s Whisky Ramblings 231: Talisker 175th Anniversary
Mark Dermul, Belgian whiskyblogger, tries a festive Talisker. The distillery was founded in 1830. So in 2005 owner Diageo decided to have a commemorative release: the 175th Anniversary. Maureen Robinson, one of Diageo’s master blenders, composed this whisky with Talisker that had matured for at least ten years, but some casks even go back to the 1970s. It is clear that something special was taken out of the warehouses fort his 175th anniversary. What a whisky!
