Talisker Bodega Series 41 Year Old

Diageo has unveiled a Talisker 41 Year Old expression as the second release in its Talisker Bodega Series. The series, which will be a Trilogy was launched last year with a 40 year old expression, aims to celebrate the age old sherry relationship the single malt has with the historic wineries of the renowned Spanish Sherry Triangle, where Talisker once sourced its casks.

Bottled at 50.7% ABV, the Talisker 41 Year Old will be the oldest official bottling of Talisker to have ever been released, a limited release of 2,000 bottles which has been finished in six Manzanilla casks which were sourced from Spain's Bodega Delgado Zuleta, the oldest sherry producer in Spain's famous Sherry Triangle, each cask had previously held Zuleta's flagship wine La Goya.

Described as a rich whisky, the nose is said to have a 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 unmistakeable character of Talisker.

The Talisker Bodega Series 41 Year Old has a RRP of 2,900 for a 70cl bottle and will be available from August from specialist whisky retailers such as The Whisky Exchange, The Whisky Shop and Master of Malt
