This 41 year old whisky, the oldest ever released from Talisker, was distilled in 1978 and has been finished in Mazanilla sherry casks from Delgado Zuleta. The Delgado Zuleta bodega is one of the oldest sherry producers in Spain and like Talisker is made on the coast.
Official Tasting NotesAppearance : Bright amber with deep golden lights. Astonishingly good beading for this strength.
Nose : A mild nose-feel, dry and maritime overall, with light prickle from the sheer characyer of the spirit. The aroma presents salty-spicy top-notes and a sweet, mellow fruity middle with hints of slightly caramelised apple crumble. The base is lightly maritime, with faded boat varnish, dried fish, and just a suggestion of smok. A drop of water alters this very little, but brings up more smoky notes. Now softer overall.
Body :Medium to full.
Palate : Great to drink at natural strength, when the taste seamlessly moves from sweetness through saltiness to pepper, smoke, fire and brimstone and is delicious to drink straight. The mouth-filling texture is rich and smooth. The taste starts with the sweetness of soft fudge, then a balancing saltiness gradually yeilds to a peppery heat that lasts and lasts. The expected chilli-pepper kick at the back is gloriously unmuted. Sweeter, more savoury and smoky when reduced, it’s still delicious, while the pepper still finds a way through.
Finish : Long, hot, smoky and delicious, with mouth-cooling Sichuan pepper in the aftertaste amid lingering threads of peat smoke. Adding water reduces the heat while lengthening the finish.
