1956 Gordon & Macphail Talisker Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

Isle of Skye, SCOTLAND
$2,999.00 Bottle
  • ABV 54.4%

'The lava of the Cuillins' - that is how Talisker, the Golden Spirit of Skye was described by one poetic taster. This is indeed a turbulent Gaelic malt ; the only single malt from a spectacularly beautiful island of wild moorlands and dramatic mountain peaks known as the Cuillins. Built in Carbost in 1831 near 'Talisker House', the distillery has entertained such personalities as Boswell & Johnson. Another celebrity who enjoyed his Talisker was author, Robert Louis Stevenson, describing it in 1880 as 'king 'o' drinks'. Stevenson rightly recognised it as bearing similarities to both the Glenlivet and Islay malts. However, by taking 'the best of both worlds' so to speak, Talisker had achieved a new, unique style of whisky. In 1892 Roderick Kemp, a part owner sold his share to establish the now immortal Macallan distillery, however, the distillery has continued strong since.

This now scarce edition was distilled in 1956 and released by the reputable independent bottlers, Gordon & Macphail, at cask strength. 54.4% Alc./Vol.
