Talisker, Bodega, 40 Year Old, 50% ABV, Skye

This is a sensational echo of the old Talisker, enhanced by the gentle accent of the sherry casks, with rich raisin, peaty aromas and a rare, sweet opulence and fruity smokiness. Its unique intensity builds a Talisker trademark peppery kick, to introduce a soothing long finish.

Presented in a striking case, the opulent design was inspired by the distinguished arches of the sherry Bodegas and architecture of the sundial of Sanlucar de Barrameda.

The most precious Talisker expression to date, with just 2,000 bottles available globally, this is not just one of the oldest, but the rarest and most luxurious of finishes. There will be further releases of The Bodega Series, each finished in different casks to complete a journey around the Sherry Triangle

Contains Sulphites.

About Talisker

Talisker is the only Single Malt Scotch Whisky made by the sea on the shores of the Isle of Skye, one of the most remote, rugged, yet beautiful landscapes in Scotland. Few whiskies tell the story of their origin better than Talisker. Its smell and taste instantly connect the drinker with the rugged environment – like a warm welcome from a wild sea. It’s a powerhouse; challenging but adored; once discovered rarely left.

In 1825, Hugh MacAskill of Eigg acquired Talisker House and the north end of the Minginish peninsula on the rugged, beautiful Isle of Skye
Five years later, he and his brother had built what was to become one of the world’s most popular distilleries on the shore of Loch Harport. In fact, by as early as 1898, Talisker was one of the best selling malt whiskies in the UK. Through fire, war and financial crises, this northern outpost – Skye’s only distillery – has remained strong: producing consistently fine whiskies which, once tried, are rarely forgotten. Sitting amongst the Inner Hebridean Scottish Isles, Skye is rugged, windswept, a place of extremes. The only whisky on Skye, Talisker captures the spirit of its island home perfectly. Bursting with the famous smokiness, the surprising subtle notes of black pepper, and yet rounded with a smooth finish, Talisker is a delicious contradiction.

Appellation: Skye

Skye, or the Isle of Skye, is the largest and northernmost of the major islands in the Inner Hebrides of Scotland. The rocky, craggy landscape is reflected in the intense flavor profile of the island's only whisky -Talisker. Similar to Islay in its full body and peaty profile, Talisker, across the board, has a slight spiciness not found in the malts from the more southerly islands.
