Only 1997 bottles of this 44 years aged Single Malt from the Talisker Distillery were released in 2022. This "Forests of the Deep" has been inspired by an expedition with Parley for the Oceans, Talisker's partner in Ocean conservation and it was finished in Marine Oak Casks (which were created by charring the staves using sustainably-farmed Scottish sea kelp). The kelp was foraged on an expedition near the Cape of Good Hope in South Africa organised by Parley for the Oceans and supported by Talisker. This release celebrates the World Ocean Day (June 8) Nose: Ocean flavour, salty seaweed, smoky. Palate: Salty and smoky, oily-smooth touch, a bit of toffee sweetness. Finish: Long with pepper spicy and hints of sweet.
