From Scotland’s stunning Isle of Skye comes this rich, oily Talisker single malt. The distillery was built back in 1830, and Port Ruighe (pronounced 'Portree') is named after the Gaelic spelling of the once bustling trading port on the island, as well as a nod to the Scottish traders who braved the high seas and were instrumental in the foundation of the port wine trade. 

As such, after a maturation in a combination of ex-bourbon, refill European oak, and heavily-charred casks, this single malt was appropriately finished in ex-Port casks. That hallmark oily, maritime smokiness from Talisker is paired with subtly floral flavours and heaps of red fruit, as you’d expect from the fortified wine.

Nose

Only a smidge of smoke, the nose is light and fresh with salted caramel, waxy vanilla, and wafts of rose.

Palate

Savoury smoke develops over the palate, but notes of thick caramel, chilli chocolate, and strawberry laces lead the way.

Finish

Lingering delicate smoke, along with roasted coffee bean, and drying oak.

A free Talisker enamel mug, perfect for a Talisker Hot Chocolate, a Hot Toddy, or indeed a cup of tea (while dreaming of whisky...).
