Talisker 41 Year Old Description
The oldest ever official bottling from Talisker distillery on Skye, this 1978 vintage has been matured in American oak barrels before a period of finishing in Manzanilla sherry casks from Delgado Zuleta, one of the oldest bodegas in Jerez, Spain. The second 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. Limited to just 2,000 bottles worldwide.
Nose: spicy top notes and a fruity middle with caramelised apple crumble and a maritime base.
Palate: rich and smooth with a soft fudge sweetness giving way to salt and a peppery heat and a chilli-pepper kick.
Finish: long, hot, and smoky with pepper and peat lingering.
