We're really excited to have got our hands on a few bottles of the *extremely* limited first release from Scotland's hottest new distillery.
Torabhaig (pronounced Toravaig) is the first new distillery built on the Isle of Skye for 190 years. The team has painstakingly restored an old farm steading and is now hard at work making top-notch single malts like this 2017 Legacy Series.
Like all the best island single malts, it's all about the peat. But this isn't an aggressive bog beast - no chewing on a bar of coal-tar soap here. The phrase Torabhaig use is 'well-tempered peat' and that means the smokiness drifts beautifully in the space between robust and refined. You really have to try it to see what we mean. Believe us, it's worth it.
