Talisker 44 Year Old: Forests of the Deep is a breath-taking expression that has been created to celebrate the natural beauty and wonder of the world's oceans. Matured American and European oak and finished in marine charred casks, just 1,997 bottles of this outstanding single malt have been produced. You can pre-order it here today for £3,800 for a delivery on 8th June which happens to be World Ocean Day! We have limited allocation of this ultra-rare expression so you’ll need to be fast if you’d like a bottle to call your own.

The maritime influence is clear in the nose, with aromas of seaweed, sea salt, and smoke, complemented by sweeter toffee notes. Expect a smoky palate full of white pepper and salt. A particularly long, waxy finish awaits.

The expression is presented in a stunning box, showcasing a beautiful painted artwork of sea exploration. It looks just as good as it tastes!

This is Talisker’s oldest expression yet and is the second release in their Xpedition Oak series, following their highly successful Xpedition Oak 43 Year Old. The Xpedition Oak Series was created to embrace the wilderness through a selection of single malts that have been developed via exposure to the natural elements in some way. You can shop Xpedition Oak 43 Year Old at The Whisky Shop here today if you are hoping to collect the full series!
