Torabhaig Legacy "Allt Gleann" Single Malt Scotch
Torabhaig Distillery, located on the Isle of Skye, came on to the scene last year with their initial release. "Allt Gleann" marks the second expression in its Legacy Series of Single Malt Scotch Whiskies. Named after the burn (stream) that flows down the side of the distillery in Teangue on the Isle of Skye, this comes bottled at 46%, drawn from no more than 30 casks. Allt Gleann is the second of four expressions in the Torabhaig Legacy Series. These arrive ahead of Torabhaig Single Malt Whisky 10 year old, due for release in 2028. Using wooden washbacks for fermentation and twin copper stills, Torabhaig Distillery has developed a signature style described as “well-tempered peat,” the company says. That description is apt, as their whisky deftly walks the line where peat smoke meets the lovely pure character of barley sugars and soft fruit notes. A lot of character for a whisky "in progress".
