The Isle of Skye-based distillery has revealed its oldest Scotch whisky to date – Talisker 43-Year-Old Xpedition: The Atlantic Challenge.
Released as a limited edition (with only 1,830 bottles available), the single malt will be available globally from June.
The 43-year-old Talisker Scotch whisky was drawn from just 10 casks and has tasting notes that include ‘peppery sea salt smoky sweetness’.
The expression was designed to celebrate the brand’s founding year, when the MacAskill brothers rowed from the Isle of Eigg to the Isle of Skye and established the Talisker Distillery.
Ewan Gunn, senior global brand ambassador, said: “This whisky is a sublime single malt that captures the pinnacle of the key aromas of Talisker – spice, sweetness, waxy and creamy, with a sense of the sea spray the morning after the storm.
“The four decades of maturation have given a full flavour, yet a softness to this bold dram resulting in a rounded and elegant experience.”
