Talisker launches the second release in the Talisker Bodega series
Talisker has unveiled the latest launch in the Talisker Bodega series, Talisker 41-year-old whisky, with only 2,000 bottles being released from August.
Feature 05 JUL 2019
The Talisker Bodega series is an exploration of sherry cask finishes from the finest of Talisker Single Malt whiskies.
Talisker’s Master of Malt, Dr Craig Wilson, helped to craft the precious 41-year-old liquid, working alongside the Sherry Masters at Bodega Delgado Zuleta. The Sherry experts hand-picked only six exceptional casks for finishing, that once held the Bodega’s flagship wine La Goya, a very fine Manzanilla aged in casks more than a century old.
The result is a remarkable rich whisky, the nose carries the sweet fruitiness of sultanas and orange peel framed by sandalwood, with a tang of salty sea air and smoky raw sugar. The taste offers a fine balance between sweetness and smoke. The finish is generously warming and sustained, with a drying, softly smoky conclusion, an extraordinary 41-year-old liquid retaining the unmistakable character of Talisker.
Much like the 40-year-old first release in the Talisker Bodega series, the exquisite golden spirit lies in a hand crafted bottle that comes housed in a special Sherry-oak casing to evoke many stages of the whisky’s history and journey.
