United Kingdom

Colour Deep amber with reddish highlights

Nose Charred orange, sticky butterscotch, malt bread and roasted nuts, apple crumble with cinnamon and a whiff of pipe tobacco.

Palate Dried apple and apricot with a hint of maritime, ripe figs and sultanas amongst salted toffee and a wash of spice and smoke.

Finish Rich, warming and long lasting. Dark chocolate melds with raisins, a touch of coffee, earthy notes and caramelised French oak.

Food Match Dry rubbed medium rare Scotch fillet, barbecued over flames beside roast sweet potato. Finish up with some dark chocolate.


This ground-breaking single malt from Scotland’s Isle of Skye is like nothing we’ve seen before.

Immerse yourself in a seaside adventure with the limited edition Talisker Wilder Seas. A true whisky of firsts, we were thrilled to be partnering exclusively with the masters of maritime malt to bring this spectacular release to Australia.

This was the first time in Talisker’s history they’ve finished a single malt in XO Cognac casks. Not only that, it’s also the first to be bottled in 100% recycled biofuel powered glass, which is adorned with a eye-catching ceramic decoration depicting the topographical lines of Skye’s coastline. This innovative and rare packaging from Talisker reflects their partnership with Parley for the Oceans in an effort to safeguard the seas' unique ecosystems (for every bottle sold, Talisker are donating £3 to the charity).

We’ve been swept away by how luscious this whisky is, with its waves of salt, spice and soft peat — but don’t just take our word for it. World-leading whisky writer and critic, Charles Maclean MBE, puts it in a nutshell: “A rich, complex and tightly integrated aroma and a taste which is pure Talisker, with added dried fruitiness”.

If you know Talisker then you’ll no doubt be fond of their gorgeously earthy and viscous malts that have led them to the cult status they are today. An opulent finish in French XO Cognac casks has layered this lightly peated dram with notes of charred orange, sticky butterscotch, as well as dried apple and apricot, creating a whisky experience you won’t be able to forget.

With a thick, chewy finish and long-lasting warmth, it was a privilege to unleash Talisker in this unique finish. Join the Club free today to get your hands on our upcoming releases.
