In 2014 Talisker introduced this whisky to the world and before long it became a single malt whisky with a big bold reputation. The Port Ruighe (pronounced Port-Ree) was considered a bit of a step up from the entry point whiskies that Talisker were offering, the Storm and the 10 years old. Talisker are now hitting the industry hard with no age statement bottling’s and very tasty ones at that.
The construction of this fine Scotch whisky is the result of maturing whisky in European and American refill casks some of which have been heavily charred. The whiskies from these barrels are then transferred into barrels that previously held port for finishing. The result is a hit single malt with rich flavours and traditional attributes.
Our Tasting Notes
Nose: The vanilla immediately touches the senses, black pepper and almond meal. Freshly cooked prawns and lemon citrus butter. Lemon scented candles and a little pvc.
Taste: An oily whisky, very rich with lots of citrus and butter creaminess. There’s a peppery spice, but that’s expected after the nose gave it away however it balances the whisky nicely. Stewed fruits and lemon meringue pie. Rich summer berries soaked into a pudding with clotted cream. Hits of peat smoke and smoked meats.
Finish: Long finish, mouth coating and delicious. Fruits are still there but now dark chocolate, ashy smoke and more smoked meats.
