Talisker 43 Year Old – Xpedition Oak (July 2021 – Issue 4)

Talisker 43yo Xpedition Bottling Note:

Here’s something really special from the tremendous Talisker on the isle of Skye. It’s the distillery’s oldest release to date! Talisker 43 Year Old Xpedition Oak is a phenomenally well-aged single malt, showing off all the wonderful characteristics that we’ve come to expect from the distillery, including its distinctive sea spray elements. Intriguingly, this expression was finished in casks featuring staves that endured quite a journey. Adventurer James Aiken took the staves on a 3,264 mile journey across the Atlantic aboard his boat, The Oaken Yarn, after which they returned to Scotland to become casks and finish this very expression. 1,830 bottles of Talisker 43 Year Old Xpedition Oak were released.
