Mac-Talla Terra Tasting Notes

Official tasting notes

Nose: Citrus notes, smoky barley and fresh sea air.

Palate: Clean woodsmoke, salty sea spray and a crisp, clean smoky finish. An absolute delight for any classic Islay whisky enthusiast.

Ed's tasting notes

Colour: Natural colour; chardonnay. Coats my copita, with multiple legs running down my glass in neat parallel order.

Nose: Marzipan, cherries, and cherry stones. Gentle peat smoke. A minerality, like wet pebbles on a stony beach. Light oak with a touch of vanilla.

Palate: Medium body, which lightly coats the mouth. Almond cake topped with marzipan and served with vanilla cream. More peat smoke, but lightly so - used almost as a seasoning. Alcohol is well integrated, contributing to the body.

Finish: A medium finish with more vanilla cream and a touch of warming wood spice to conclude.

The Morrison family have a long-standing history with this island and their knowledge and expertise ensures the highest quality of every single drop of whisky that is bottled under the Mac-Talla brand. 

MacTalla Terra represents the secret to Islay’s signature smokiness, the peat which lies deep below its surface. Infused by the earth, seasoned by the sea, Terra delivers a taste that’s smoky and fresh.

What you need to know about taxes

All alcoholic products sold by TopWhiskies are sold subject to UK alcohol tax, which is already included in the price.

UK sales are subject to VAT (currently 20%), which is included in the price. Sales outside of the UK are not subject to this tax, and international prices do not include it.

We use a specialist US shipper who sorts out US taxes. These costs are factored into the US shipping charges. So shipping may look pricey, but remember it covers your taxes as well.

For all other territories, including those in Europe, please note: your order could be subject to local sales taxes and duties upon arrival in the destination country. All additional charges are the responsibility of the recipient. As customs policies vary widely from country to country, TopWhiskies has no control over these charges, so you should contact your local customs office for further information. If you refuse to pay any import duties and taxes, this could result in the goods being destroyed by customs or being returned back to us - any refund offered would include a deduction of our costs.
