To create Xpedition Oak, Talisker sent some barrel staves off on a trans-Atlantic journey with adventurer James Aiken, who single-handedly followed the same route travelled by the teams in Talisker’s 3264-mile rowing challenge. These staves were then inserted into 10 casks of whisky aged for more than four decades, creating a unique finishing process that further infused the whisky with the spirit of the sea. Each bottle - of which there are 1830 in homage to the foundation date of the distillery - is packaged with a piece of these staves.Tasting Notes (1)
No of Bottles
Mellow overall and slightly spicy, with a fruity top note of bruised apple and smooth, aromatic hint of wax. Beneath these scents lie intriguing rich layers of aroma; notes of canvas and varnished wood mingle with maritime hints of sea-air and warm sand, all swirling above a faintly smoky and waxy base.
A smooth texture and a vibrant, juicy start introduce a sweet, rich intensity with a fresh, balancing splash of ocean salt spray. The effect becomes lightly drying before Talisker’s peppery warmth envelops the palate. Mesmerising overall, it cascades with smooth, rich flavour and is excellent to drink neat.
Wonderfully long, with a considerable sweet chili-pepper warmth that suffuses the whole palate.
