Torabhaig Allt Gleann Legacy 2nd Release

Torabhaig distillery is a new exciting addition to Scottish whisky landscape, coming from the islands region. They are located in Isle of Skye and started making small batches of whisky in 2017.

I had a pleasure of trying this Second Release of Torabhaig Allt Gleann Legacy at our local tasting. Please bare with me, these are just quick notes of an interesting dram.

According to its label, this single malt whisky has been very heavily peated. The barley has 77 ppm. Although the residual ppm level stays at 17.

Aged in a combination of first-fill bourbon and new-fill whiskey barrels for 3 years, we’re talking about a young heavy hitter of peat for sure.

Torabhaig Allt Gleann Legacy Second Release Single Malt Whisky Review

Like a young promising sibling of Talisker

Coastal influence is very evident. Reminds me of fellow Isle of Skye whisky brand Talisker. Being only their second release and so young, this whisky feels quite good.

I’ll predict a bright future for this fairly new distillery.

Matured in:
First-fill Ex-Bourbon and new-fill Whiskey barrels
ABV: 46%
Non-chill filtered, no added colour
Colour: Chardonnay
Nose: Phenols and smoke hits hard on the nose. Very coastal, with hints of citrus notes such as orange peel and zesty lemon.
Taste: Clean and peppery. Some stingy lime notes combined with spices and salty notes
Finish: Short and clinical, quite earthy with a sweet touch. Toasted sugar coated candy and mild peat.
Balance: Well done, only three years of maturation and lots of ppm, but they’ve managed to make it subtle.
