Talisker Xpedition Oak 43 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky

$4,000.00

Size
750ml

Talisker Xpedition Oak 43 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky is a rare and remarkable single malt Scotch whisky. Aged for an impressive 43 years, it boasts the classic Talisker character of sea spray and peppery warmth. The unique twist? The whisky was finished in casks that traveled a 3,264-mile Atlantic journey, infusing it with an additional layer of maritime influence. Each bottle comes with a piece of the cask stave that embarked on this epic voyage.

Description

Nose

Classic Talisker profile with prominent notes of sea spray and saline minerality. Hints of honey and peppery spice add complexity, while a subtle touch of oak emerges in the background.

Palate

Smooth and rich with a burst of maritime influence – think salty brine and seaweed. The signature Talisker peppery heat is present, balanced by notes of honey and dried fruit. Hints of oak from the casks add a touch of dryness.

Finish

Long and warming with lingering notes of sea salt, pepper, and a touch of oak. The influence of the ocean voyage shines through, leaving a lasting impression.

Mellow overall and slightly spicy, with a fruity top note of bruised apple and a smooth, aromatic hint of wax. Beneath these scents lie intriguing rich layers of aroma; notes of canvas and varnished wood mingle with maritime hints of sea air and warm sand, all swirling above a faintly smoky and waxy base.

PALATE

PALATE

A smooth texture and a vibrant, juicy start introduce a sweet, rich, intensity with a fresh, balancing splash of ocean salt spray. The effect becomes lightly drying before Talisker's peppery warmth envelops the palate. Mesmerising overall, it cascades with smooth, rich flavor and is excellent to drink neat.
