This Talisker 8-Year-Old was bottled in the late 1960s, most likely distilled in 1959 or 1960. This example was bottled by The Distillers Agency Ltd. Of Edinburgh, which was set up as a separate company by Distillers Company Ltd. (now Diageo) to bottle and export DCL brands, including Talisker. Talisker was founded in 1830 by brothers Hugh and Kenneth Macaskill under a lease on Talisker House from the chief of Clan MacLeod. The distillery was destroyed by fire in 1960, and the stills were replaced with exact replicas of the original stills. This whiskey MAY have been distilled on the original set of stills.
