Talisker 43 Year Old Xpedition Oak The Atlantic Challenge

When it was released in June 2021, this became the oldest official bottling from the Talisker distillery. It is the first in a series titled Xpedition Oak.

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.

This release celebrates James Aiken successfully rowing across the Atlantic from San Sebastián to Nelson's Dockyard, Antigua in 2019. 

The whisky has been aged in American oak for over four decades. It was finished in casks constructed of staves which accompanied Aiken during his journey at sea. It was finally bottled from ten casks at natural strength. Presented in a beautiful display case, the bottle is accompanied by a small book detailing the whisky and a sample of a cask used during maturation.

One of 1,830 bottles.
