Talisker unveils here the second edition of the Bodegas Series range with an exceptional Single Malt 41 years old.

Distilled in 1978, this Talisker is the oldest ever bottled by the Isle of Skye distillery.

Its long maturation took place in Sherry Mazanilla barrels from Delgado Zuleta, giving it a rich and fruity character while preserving the smoky notes of peat, typical of the Talisker distillery.

A few miles away from the west coast of the Highlands sits the Isle of Skye, with its rugged coastline and windswept peat lands.

The small coastal town of Carboast, on the shores of Loch Harport and on the foothills of the Cuillins,  is nestled in a region battered by the winds and sea breeze, Talisker. This is where the only one distillery of the island chose to settle – one of the most prestigious and isolated of all.

Back in 1825, Hugh and Kenneth Mac Askill decided to establish themselves on the Isle of Skye. They quickly grew fond of their adoptive region, and rented a plot in Carbost to build, in 1830, the Talisker distillery. Laden with salt, lava and peat, the distillery bottles exceptional Single Malts, known for their spicy, powerful character.

Because of the unique character and quality of Talisker whiskies, the distillery features in the Classic Malts Selection. Created more than 20 years ago, this selection recognises Single Malts crafted in the tradition of iconic distilleries, and offers the most impressive whisky styles Scotland has to offer.

Colour: amber with golden reflections.

Nose: soft and dry, a maritime reminder with an iodine touch, some spices join it as well as a fruity aroma, not to mention the typical Talisker peat note which is light.

Taste: rich and smooth, a sweet-salty mixture is added to the pepper and smoke.

Finish: long and warm with peppery and smoky peat notes, all with a good persistence.
