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.
APPEARANCE: Dark, rich amber gold.
NOSE: Instant, very well balanced and sweet, yet not cloying; overall, rather like the sweet smokiness of a fading wood fire with the fruity richness of ripe plums.
BODY: Medium bodied and softly textured.
PALATE: Sublime, smoky and savoury: spicy pepper rapidly grows into peatiness, as a creamy smokiness mingles with spice and dark fruits.
FINISH: Long, memorable and mouth-filling, leaving on the tongue an appealing and intense cocoa-rich drying smokiness.
