Entering the world of single malt Scotch whisky and its alternatives from other countries isn't an easy thing to do. It has taken me at least 4 years to finally take the plunge. I'll be documenting my whisky adventures and post some of my amateurish tasting notes.

Three expressions of Talisker
A friend of mine has tried more whisky than I have but has proclaimed that his favorite single malt of all time is Talisker. He will drink other whiskies but will always go back to his beloved Talisker. For me, Talisker is a very drinkable whisky that has the saltiness of the sea in every drop. Talisker is distilled on the only distillery on the Isle of Skye. At Liquors Hasegawa I saw a beautiful boxed set of three Taliskers. I just had to buy it.

The three expressions are Talisker 10, Talisker 18 and Talisker Distiller's Edition which is finished in Oloroso casks. All of these are at 45.8% and the bottle size is 200ml. I look forward to trying these as a "vertical tasting" later.
