Talisker introduces new Port-finished single malt whisky

Published:  08 May, 2013

Talisker has introduced a new addition to its stable, Talisker Port Ruighe, named after the main town
on the Isle of Skye. This comes in the wake of the recent launch of Talisker Storm in March.
Enriched by double maturation in Port cask wood, Talisker Port Ruighe is a permanent addition to the current core range of Talisker single malt whiskies and is 45.8% abv.
"Talisker Port Ruighe is a combination of spirit that has been matured in American oak and European oak refill casks in the traditional manner, along with spirit that has been filled into specially conditioned deeply charred casks," said master blender Maureen Robinson. "The spirit is then finished in casks that have previously held Port wine which endows it with spicy fruit notes."
The whisky is available now to specialist whisky retailers in western Europe and has a premium rrp of 20%-25% above the Talisker 10 Year Old.
