Review #840 (2021)

The first edition in the ”Legacy Series”, and the first official release from Torabhaig, the new distillery on Isle of Skye. Nice mellow peat in the smell. Vegetation and fresh white fruits.

A little alcohol at first, but when the flavours starts to flow in, you get some peat and vanilla in the taste. Hay, crisp apples and some peppery notes in the finish. The finish is actually quite long, considering the age, and especially the peppery notes stays for quite a while.

Luckily, they have bottled it at 46%, and adding the peat, you can mask quite a lot of the youthfulness in this whisky. A very good first edition from a new distillery, when you take the age into consideration. I will give this 83/100 (20/21/21/21).
