Talisker 40yr The Bodega Series
The Talisker Bodega Series is an exploration of Sherry Cask finishes, that illustrates the rarity and preciousness of the liquid and the true story only Talisker can tell.
Our Master of Malts pays tribute to the close relationship Talisker has had with Sherry and has created an exceptional Talisker 40-year-old whisky finished in casks from the famed Sherry triangle.
Nose: Mild and rich, with light nose prickle. The sweet fruitiness of sultanas and pears in syrup, then orange peel, framed in oiled sandalwood, with a salty suggestion of seaweed or sea air in the middle, on a base of faintly smoky raw sugar. Water brings up a buttery note of short crust pastry and a waxy hint.
Body: Medium, Rich
Palate: Most appealing. At natural strength, the texture is very fine; oil-smooth and lightly coating. The taste starts sweetly fruity - white grapes, more sultanas - then becomes sea-salty and savoury, before finishing hot and peppery.
As the sweet waves of flavour roll out across the palate, they break over a hint of that Talisker trademark, hot chilli spice, and some scented smoke.
There's great balance and vigour throughout. Adding water may tame the fire a little, but the lion remains wild at heart.
Finish: Long and warming, with a late, great tongue-tingling nuttiness in the embers as the fire slips down, and a last smoky trace of snuffed candle.
