Talisker 1978 41 Year Old Bodega Series No.2

For a long time, Talisker was the sole distillery on Scotland’s iconic Isle of Skye. Renowned for the quality of its output, the distillery has rarely changed hands, joining DCL (now Diageo) back in 1916. Despite this, releases were not the most common. An 8 year old was bottled officially and Gordon & MacPhail produced what are now classic and sought after vintage bottlings under official license from the distillery. When a 10 year old expression became a founding pillar of United Distillers’ Classic Malts range in 1988, the popularity of the distillery exploded, and it is now one of the most revered and exported in Scotland.

At the time of release in mid-2019, this was the oldest expression of Talisker ever released.  The Bodega Series is a trilogy of single malts designed to explore the effects of sherry cask finishes on Talisker distilley's ‘finest’ expressions.

One of 2000 bottles produced.
