Question about Talisker 10 package

Postby Dr. A » Tue Jul 22, 2008 10:29 am

Hi

Some days ago I bought a Talisker 10, one of my faves since I tried it about 1 year ago and not so harmful to my pocket as my first option Lagavulin 16.

Well, the reason of my post is that yesterday during a visit to a big supermarket I saw a bottle of Talisker 10 with a different cardbox design and stiker, and obviously, looking old.

My question is, ¿when did Talisker change the design? ¿is this bottle of any extra value?

I can put pictures later if it helps...

Regards.

What colour was the box?
The standard packaging is a blue box which they changed to from a greyish (but nice) design a few years ago.
They released a funky limited edition leatherette tube with a bit of rope as a closure last year.
Hope this helps.

They also had the rock box - I picked one of those up about a year ago:

That's tghe one - the geyish design I was talking about. Nice - actually more imaginative than the blue effort. Ah well, progress :roll:

Hi

It's the "rock box" the one I saw (and bought). Thanx for the information. Anyway, it a kind of limited edition or something?

Regards.
