Whisky from the Islands

Talisker Bodega Series has been designed to explore the impact of different Sherry cask finishes on single malt Scotch. The finishing casks used in the range have been sourced from the ‘Sherry Triangle’, where Talisker once sourced all its casks.

A beautifully-presented Talisker.  This is the first in The Talisker Bodega Series of cask-finished releases.  This Talisker 1978 vintage 40-Year-Old aged in refill casks. It was then finished in very special Bodega Delgado Zuleta Sherry casks that once held 40-year-old Amontillado Sherry for its final period of maturation.
