Torabhaig Allt Gleann Single Malt Scotch Whisky takes its place as the successor to the highly acclaimed Torabhaig Legacy 1. This exquisite expression marks the second step in the journey towards the introduction of the highly anticipated Torabhaig Single Malt 10 years old in 2029. Named after the burn that gracefully flows next to the distillery, Allt Gleann, this whisky captures the essence of Skye and the dedication of the Torabhaig Distillery to crafting exceptional spirits. Bottled in 2021 for the Legacy Series, this release has been matured in a combination of 1st Fill Bourbon and Refill Bourbon casks, imparting a wealth of flavors and complexities to the spirit.
Located on the stunning Isle of Skye, the Torabhaig Distillery holds a special place in the whisky world as the first new distillery on the island in 190 years. It is only the second official Malt Whisky Distillery to grace Skye, and it beautifully blends tradition with progress, creating an authentic and characterful spirit that captures the essence of its surroundings.
Allt Gleann, with its depth and complexity, embodies the unique marriage of elegance and robustness. This whisky dances delicately on the palate, revealing layers of flavors that are in perfect harmony. Despite the presence of heavily peated barley, the whisky maintains a sense of refinement and sophistication. Torabhaig has masterfully harnessed the peat to create a flavor profile that is both elegant and robust, which they aptly refer to as "Well-Tempered Peat." This signature style, showcased in Allt Gleann, shapes the future profile of Torabhaig whiskies, adding depth and complexity to each expression.
The Allt Gleann expression presents a smokier and even more elegant profile compared to its predecessor, Legacy 1. Through a slightly modified application of peat and the use of carefully selected barrels, Torabhaig has crafted a whisky that pushes the boundaries of flavor while remaining true to its roots. The result is a whisky that captivates the senses, inviting whisky enthusiasts on a journey of discovery.
From the first pour, the aromas of Allt Gleann transport you to the rugged landscapes of Skye. The nose reveals a symphony of peat smoke intertwined with delicate notes of vanilla, honey, and citrus. These fragrant nuances create an alluring olfactory experience, preparing the palate for the delights to come.
On the tongue, the whisky unfolds its layers of flavor. The peat smoke, beautifully balanced, dances with flavors of ripe fruits, toffee, and a hint of oak. The interplay between the smokiness and the sweetness creates a remarkable harmony, showcasing the mastery of Torabhaig's blending and maturation techniques. The finish is long-lasting, with the flavors lingering on the palate, inviting you to savor each moment.
Torabhaig Allt Gleann is a testament to the dedication and passion of the Torabhaig Distillery in crafting exceptional whiskies. It represents the distillery's commitment to pushing boundaries while remaining true to their heritage and the unique character of Skye.
