Tickety Boo`s pub in Dundee The distillery was founded in 1830 by Hugh and Kenneth MacAskill, and built in 1831 at Carbost after a number of false starts on other sites when they acquired the lease of Talisker House from the MacLeod of MacLeod. When a new lease for the distillery was negotiated with the chief of Clan MacLeod in 1892. The malted barley used in production comes from Muir of Ord. Talisker has an unusual feature - swan neck lye pipes. A loop exists in the pipes taking the vapour from the stills to the worm tubs so some of the alcohol condenses before it even reaches the cooler. It then runs back in to the stills and is distilled again. Talisker now has an annual output of three and a half million litres of spirit. Talisker is known for its unique spicy flavour with an above average peat content. This is especially true in the 10 year old version, while the 18 year old has a less dramatic, more subtle flavour
