Mark’s Whisky Ramblings 377: Torabhaig 2017 The Legacy Series – Inaugural Release
Mark Dermul, Belgian whisky blogger, tries the newest malt from Skye. The first official release from the Torabhaig distillery, founded in 2017, sold out in a flash. This despite the fact that, like many other inaugural releases we’ve seen in recent months, it is very young liquid, only just legally able to call itself whisky. But then again, we’ve also seen that this is not necessarily a problem. The only problem Torabhaig might suffer from is the fact that it will not escape the comparison with Talisker. ‘Let’s not fall into that trap and just judge the whisky on its own merits, what do you say?’ Mark muses.
