Product Description

As this is the oldest Talisker released to date (2018) and with only 400 bottles available for the UK market this is sure to be in big demand.

The first of the Talisker Bodega Series is a 40-year-old single malt finished in amontillado casks sourced from one of Jerez’s oldest Sherry producers, Delgado Zuleta.

The 1978 vintage – the oldest yet released by the distillery into global markets, and ‘one of Talisker’s most valuable expressions to date’ – has been matured in refill American oak barrels before being finished in the ‘special and unusual’ 40-year-old amontillado Sherry casks.

The 50% abv expression is described as ‘a deep, crystal gold liquid which signifies an echo of the old Talisker’, featuring notes of white grape, sultanas, sea salt and smoke.

Only two thousand bottles, presented in hand-carved oak cases, will be available globally.

The Bodega Series will expand each year with a different expression matured in Sherry casks sourced from a bodega within Spain’s ‘Sherry Triangle’.
