Few whiskies tell the story of their origin better than Talisker. Double matured in port casks, this malt is a toast to the Scottish traders who braved the high seas and were instrumental in the foundation of the port wine trade. Port Ruighe, pronounced ‘Portree’ is the Gaelic spelling of the once-bustling trading port on Skye. The port finish combines Talisker’ s powerful maritime character with succulent sweet notes of rich berry fruits for a superb taste experience.
Each sip brings with it a sweet smokiness of a fading wood fire with the fruity richness of ripe plums. This medium body Single Malt has a smoky and savoury palate with spicy pepper rapidly growing into peatiness, as a creamy smokiness mingles with spice and dark fruits. The finish is long and memorable and mouth-filling, leaving on the tongue an appealing and intense cocoa-rich drying smokiness.
Talisker Port Ruighe was made for sipping neat. An essential gift for lovers of Talisker and smoky island single malt whiskies.
