This is a 3cl sample from the original bottling of:
Talisker Port Ruighe Port Finish
The punningly named Port Ruighe takes the classic whisky from Skye and finishes it in ruby-port casks, adding a rich fruitness and softness to tame Talisker’s peppery bite.
More from Talisker
Weird whisky, this one. The Talisker Storm is a thousand times better.
One of the better tastes for a very fair price. Slight smokey taste and aroma with a very small tinge of port.
An absolute stunner, notes of Port were very noticeable but not overpowering. Only reason I gave it four stars was because it lacked the peat found in Tali 10/18/Skye/Storm etc. with that being said, this is now my 2nd favorite single malt scotch. I would not reccomend this to someone searching for the “traditional Takisker Smoke”, but on the other hand I definitely think Tali fans should try it, just as I have. Nose- Dried Fruit, Cherries, Light Honey, and a minuscule note of brine, and even less smoke. Palate- Port right off the bat, followed by oaky- earthy flavors. Brine, and a hint of iodine and smoke. Finish- smooth, sweet, and savory. I almost didn’t want to swallow it. Cherries, Port, a very small amount of brine. Almost a tiny hint of bitters which complimented the rest of the flavors, although the bitters could have just been in my head. Mild-warming feeling going down, extremely satisfying dram that can be enjoyed by all Tali fans. There’s no doubt it stands alone in the Tali line up, but there’s a reason for that. Tali produced a dram without the pepper and peat for their consumers who weren’t a fan of things like that, but as someone who drinks Octomore without even a dash of water, Tali Port Ruighe is not only a universal dram, but an excelllent dram for all scotch connoisseurs. Final note- it does not have an age statement(NAS), byt leaks from the distillery say it’s 7-8 years old, which is fine by me. I’d reccomend this to everyone who enjoys Tali to experiment with this, and everyone who are not high peat scotch drinkers to pour a dram and share it with the friends and family. Worth the money 5x over.
Ordered this because my father loves Tali 10 and I enjoy scotch aged in Sherry/ports casks. While this was fantastic, it didn’t have anywhere close to the level of peat in Tali 10. If you’re looking for a sweet, lightly peated single malt- I’d recommend this
Its nice. But not amazing. I mean if you have some spare cash lying about, its certainly worth giving it a go, but there are better out there for just a tenner more, bowmore 15, talisker distillers edition and glenglassaugh peated portwood are all better and more lip smackingly good. This is just good.
