Talisker Port Ruighe Bottling Note

The second new no age statement release in quick succession following Talisker Storm in early 2013. Port Ruighe (pronounced Portree, as in the largest town on the Isle of Skye), is finished in Port casks after initial maturation in American and European Oak refill casks as well as casks that have been deeply charred especially.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: After a wave of initial sea spray, the nose becomes more complex with Crayola crayons, orange pith and a touch of white chocolate. Demerara and even sticking plaster emerge briefly along with plummy, umeshu notes.

Palate: Initial characteristic Talisker brine once again but much sweeter than usual. Thick and mouth coating like the Storm with chilli and a little chocolate orange. Increasingly smoky - much smokier than the nose suggests.

Finish: Milk chocolate becomes cocoa and oak with mocha notes and the faintest hint of that orange pith once again.

Overall: Alongside the distillery style there are similarities with Talisker Storm with the thicker, oilier mouthfeel and wood smoke. Port Ruighe has taken on additional characteristics from the Port casks however, adding sweetness and different notes such as plum and chocolate.

    Not as Peaty

    Aye, sweeter and not as peaty as "normal" Talisker, have to admit that the Distillers Edition is still my favourite expression of Talisker so far

    I Like This a Lot but!

    This is an excellent Talisker but I wish the edges weren't rounded. It is not even close to the Distillers Edition which I love so much. All in all this is a fine scotch and glad I purchased it but not over the DE.

    Not as bad as the Storm, but still a bit disappointing

    The new range of Taliskers (Storm, Dark Storm and Port Ruighe) are all a bit disappointing I'm afraid. Invented by marketing people, and a bit uninspired. The PR is quite ok, but if you want a gentle, complex Talisker with a sweet side to it, just get the Distillers Edition.

    Day 2 of Whisky Advent Calendar 2013 - I don't like smoky.. err, wait a min apparently I do!

    I firmly believed for a number of years (since my first and last bottle of Laphroaig) that I couldn't enjoy peaty, smoky whiskies. Talisker Port Ruighe is a game changer for me. It impressed me so much that I've now discovered that producing smoky and peaty characters involves two distinctly different processes. Charred wood here I come...!

    Excellent!

    I was fortunate enough to get this at a cracking price of £30 and honestly, I wish I had paid £44. Because that's what it deserves. An appropriate 'hit' of smoke is balanced by the effects of the Port casks. Certainly has that oily texture people have mentioned, a little bit of white pepper and that smokehouse whiff on the nose. This does it for me, and is part of an interesting direction Talisker are taking with their no age statement bottlings.

    Talisker + Port Finish = Great Marriage!

    I always liked Talisker and thats why I forked out with £52 for this new release. I was not disappointed, not at all. This is a lovely drink for a warm summers evening, not as severe as the Islay whiskys I normally drink. Talisker Port Ruighe is a great combination of flavours such as honey, fruit and tar. /mike-stockholm-sweden

    The holiday dram

    A pleasant camp fire evoking memories of childhood visits to the candy store on the nose. Surprisingly smooth on the palate with notes of Christmas pudding and truffles and a smoky finish. All in all a solid drop. If it looks like a whiskey, and walks like a whiskey.... Then you've definitely had too much whiskey!!! :)

    A gentler Talisker

    Acidic and crispy scent of grapes around smoky peat. Oily texture with fruity pepper and iodine. Warm sweet finish with lingering taste of charred wood. Perhaps a bit disappointing for a Talisker. Could use some more power and complexity, nevertheless it's good.

    Well worth the money

    While on holiday, I purchased a bottle of this whiskey. I finished all but a dram, because I wanted my father to try it. I had a hard time placing the nose, until it dawned on me. The belly of an old schooner I sailed on a few years back. Wonderful aroma of wood fired cook stove, and salt aged wood. The flavor is rich with smoked salmon and the finish pleasantly reminds you that you just sipped a full bodied dram. This is no wimp. Isle of Sky is an absolutely beautiful place, and it is no wonder they produce such a fine dram!
