This savory Single Malt Scotch from the remote Isle of Skye off the western coast of Scotland was founded in 1830 by two brothers, Hugh and Kenneth McAskill. Talisker has a unique saline quality; the ocean literally crashes against the distillery walls imparting a blast of the North Sea into your glass. High levels of peated malt add rich smoke and depth to this ex-bourbon barrel-aged scotch, and the youngest age of the whisky in this bottle is 10 years old. Talisker takes charge with its smoky nose and dense toffee aromas. Honey, dried fruits, fig and citrus with savory smoke come across the palate followed by a complex finish that is long, with floral, seaweed, ginger, and dark chocolate notes. A perfect pairing for the fall season. - Casey Teague, Whisk(e)y Specialist, H&F Bottle Shop

The distinctive 8 year old high rye barrel select bourbon is from the historic Tom Moore Distillery founded in 1879 and is made using natural limestone filtered spring water. Master Distiller Ken Pierre selects the best barrels from Warehouse Z, which lies high on a bluff and offers perfect air circulation to create a balanced, well-rounded whiskey. The sun’s full exposure warms the newly charred American Oak causing the corn, rye, and barley spirit to press deep into the barrel drawing out the rich amber vanilla tannins. The up front rye spice, custard cream, and apple leads your palate to the finish of oak, liquorish, and coffee that makes you proud Bourbon is our national spirit. - Casey Teague, Whisk(e)y Specialist, H&F Bottle Shop
