70cl * 46% ABV * Scotland
Torabhaig is a new distillery that blends traditional and contemporary approaches. The first distillery to be built on Skye in 190 years, it is only the second legal distillery ever to operate on the island and has been fully operational since January 2017. It distils in beautiful copper stills, as you would expect, but also chose to ferment in traditional wooden washbacks that add complexity of flavour to the whisky.
This is the second expression of Torabhaig Single Malt, available from August 2021 under the label ‘Allt Gleann - The Legacy Series’. It's bottled in small batches drawn from no more than 30 casks each. It's a heavily peated single malt made with a mix of Concerto and Laureate malted barley.
