A full-strength bottling of Talisker, the Isle of Skye single malt Scotch whisky, is being launched in duty-free channels in Europe, including international airports and duty-free shops on North Sea and Nordic ferry services.

The name reflects the unusually high latitude of this distillery - one of the world's most remote and northerly.

It is the first regularly available full-strength Talisker to be released. Previous bottlings of cask-strength Talisker have only been available in very expensive annual 25 and 30 Year Old limited-edition releases. This bottling carries no age statement.

Drawn from American oak refill casks, Talisker 57 North is described as having "all of Talisker's full-on vigour with a smoky hot attack which, cut with a little water, opens to reveal a sweet-centred smoothness".
