Talisker 40 Year Old
70cl / 50% abv
The oldest official bottling from Talisker distillery on Skye, this 1978 vintage has been matured in American oak barrels before a period of finishing in 40 year old Amontillado sherry casks from one of the oldest bodegas in Jerez, Spain. The first in The Bodega Series of cask-finished releases, this method of finishing harks back to the way Talisker would have been made at the beginning of the 20th century.
Nose: rich raisins and peat with a sweet, fruity smoke.
Palate: waves of fruit and sweet sultanas from the sherry casks, with the sea spray and smokiness that Talisker is famed for.
Finish: smooth and sweet with a touch of pepper.
