Unearthing a new depth of flavour, this exquisitely rare new Single Malt Scotch whisky from Talisker is the final release in a series of adventures in wild whisky making, finished in heavily charred, ice-fractured, Ex Bourbon American Oak casks. A limited release, only 2,455 bottles of this 45-Year-Old cask strength Single Malt Scotch are available for purchase.
This Single Malt Scotch whisky was aged for over four decades, revealing unexplored richness, complexity and a unique untamed flavour which is attributed to the whisky travelling deeper into the casks to obtain spicier and sweeter aromas from the American Oak ex-Bourbon barrels.
The texture is wondrously oil-smooth and mouth-filling; the taste starts toffee-sweet then becomes mouth-wateringly salty and increasingly peppery; even at this age there is a striking intensity to it, and a fine chili catch. An attractive saltiness to the toffee now suggests salted caramels, with slightly less pepper. The finish is long, with a glorious chili pepper effect and a trace of candle-wax; this grows in the aftertaste, in which both saltiness and pepper also persist.
With over 270 years of experience and having brought to market one of the most iconic global whisky brands of the modern era in J&B Rare, Justerini & Brooks is proud to be able to offer access to some of the rarest and most collectible whiskies in the world.
