  1. Steel&Fire did not rate this whisky Member Senior

    No more bottle flippers needed if even official Whisky stockists participate in that ripp-off and try to sell this Whisky for double and tripple the RRP.
    180 E at Kuhns Trink Genuss
    100 E at whisky.de

    Enough other fine whiskies on the market to spend your money for.

  2. whisky313 did not rate this whisky Specialist

    Torabhaig, the second legal distillery on the Isle of Skye,
    brings the "Inaugural Release" onto the market in February 2021. The first bottling of the "Legacy Series" 2017 is a peated single malt.

    3600 bottles for the German market - RRP € 59.99

    1200 bottles for the Swiss market - RRP 65.50 CHF

    Calm down people, its £50 to be released globally on the 19th of February.

    Serge gave 88, but don't raise the price already. Come on.

    Not a bad whisky but nothing special, even hardly worth the the retail price, perhaps if it was cask strenght? Really pathetic those people who try to sell right away for double. Remember that for this retail price you can also have an Ardbeg Uigeadail...just saying.

  5. Campie did not rate this whisky Expert Junior

    Just bought a bottle at a local store of a well-known Dutch chain (sold out online) for 53.99 euro and opened it the minute I got home (hah!)
    #daydrinking because what else can you during a pandemic ;)
    #let's ban stores and individual sellers who double/triple the RRP from Whiskybase!

  6. Cerebral15 scored this whisky 87 points Newbie

    Pushes the line on how good a 3yo whisky can be for me! is a great dram at a great price point. This distillery has a bright future

    As it is from Skye island, I was impatient to try this one. Fresh, smoky, fruity, finely peated, but not as complex as I would like, the finish is quite fast. The bottle is a bit pricy, I would suggest that buying it is more supporting the new distillery than getting an exceptional bottle.

  8. de Geest scored this whisky 87 points Expert Junior

    Super tasty, soft and sharp edge. Good smoke much to discover. Islay but also some talisker and ardmore. Good start, this is promising.

    A nice depth for a young whisky. Dark but also somewhat fruity

  10. wisekycourse scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    nose:
    malt, freshness, fleeting smoke, some citrus fruits, some iodized seaweed
    mouth:
    spices!! , it shows youth, then comes the clean peat, a little earthy, then cold ash quickly on citrus fruits (bright lemons with the juice!)
    final:
    simple, short, on peppery spices, malt, flowers wet by spray, cold ashes.

    a pleasure dram on this new distillery which releases a young product closer to an Islay in my opinion than a Talisker, a good product which does not hide its youth.
