  • Mac-Talla - Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky

    Mac-Talla is a whisky brand produced by Morrison Scotch Whisky Distillers. The name "Mac-Talla" means "echo" in Gaelic and reflects the long-standing connection of the Morrison family with the Scottish island of Islay, which has been maintained over several generations. The Morrison family, one of Scotland's oldest whisky families, has a significant history as whisky brokers, blenders, and distillers.

    Mac-Talla offers a range of Islay single malt whiskies known for their typical flavors shaped by the island's rugged nature. Popular releases include "Mac-Talla Terra," "Mac-Talla Mara," and "Mac-Talla Strata." "Terra" is characterized by earthy and smoky notes, while "Mara" reflects the island's maritime influences with notes of seaweed and salty air. "Strata," on the other hand, offers a complex blend of sweet and spicy notes achieved through aging in various types of casks.

    The flavor profiles of Mac-Talla whiskies are diverse. They include notes of peat smoke, sea salt, dried fruits, caramel, and spices, which are further enhanced by aging in bourbon and sherry casks. Particularly noteworthy is the complexity that each sip offers, ranging from maritime notes to sweet and fruity aromas.

    The history of the Morrison family and their connection to Islay is deeply rooted. William Walker, a significant whisky broker in the early 20th century, was known for his close collaboration with the distilleries on Islay and played a key role in marketing Islay whiskies in the USA after the end of Prohibition. This tradition was continued by Stanley P. Morrison, who was instrumental in reviving the Bowmore distillery and thus laid the foundation for the current reputation of Morrison Scotch Whisky Distillers.
