25.5.18 Forty Year Old Whisky Enhanced by Forty Year Old Amontillado
One of Scotland’s most emblematic distilleries, Talisker on the Isle of Skye, has chosen to finish an extremely limited edition 40 year old single malt Whisky in butts seasoned with one of the best Amontillados money can buy: Quo Vadis? VORS from the Bodegas of Delgado Zuleta in Sanlúcar. The firm has supplied butts to Talisker for over 100 years. It is a winning combination as both products display delightful maritime characteristics mellowed and enhanced by time. First the Whisky is aged in American oak refill casks before spending its final years in just five Amontillado butts before bottling at 50% vol. This launch is the first in the new Talisker Bodega Series, but before you rush out to buy this nectar, there will only be 2,000 bottles at a price of £2,750. You could buy a lot of Quo Vadis? for that!
