The first release of the Talisker Bodega series was described by DIAGEO Global Brand Ambassador Donald Colville as embodying "the wildness of Skye with the warmth of Spain’." He adds, "It is a magnificent, lion-hearted old Talisker, rich with the sophistication of age, yet still full of life and retaining the make's familiar maritime and spicy character." We couldn't have said it better ourselves. 

Flavour Profile: Nose

The sweet fruitiness of sultanas and pears in syrup, then orange peel, framed in oiled sandalwood, with a salty suggestion of seaweed or sea air in the middle, on a base of faintly smoky raw sugar.

Flavour Profile: Palate

The texture is very fine; oil-smooth and lightly coating. The taste starts with sweet fruitiness, then becomes sea-salty and savoury, before finishing hot and peppery. As the sweet waves of flavour roll out across the palate, they break over a hint of that Talisker trademark, hot chilli spice, and some scented smoke. There's great balance and vigour throughout. 

Flavour Profile: Finish

Long and warming, with a late, great tongue-tingling nuttiness in the embers as the fire slips down, and a last smoky trace of snuffed candle.
