Whisky Reviews for Talisker Port Ruighe

6 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 83.72 points

  1. LDB scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    Notes from a blind tasting.
    Unfortunately I find that something meaningless.
    • Nose
      81 81
      Right at the beginning a clear nose of smoke, at the same time aromatic, reminiscent of Talisker and slightly metallic,
      but also reminiscent of ripe berries.
    • Taste
      79 79
      Sweet, slightly tingling, supple, then clear peppery.
      The pepper portion in the mouth indicates a Talisker.
    • Finish
      79 79
      Peat flavors become a bit bitter in the finish, which opens relatively quickly into a general smoke.

  2. wisekycourse scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    good surprise for a small price more, to taste with a salmon marbled!
    • Nose
      salt, a feeling of dust, candied fruit, pepper!
    • Taste
      very salty, peppery, smoky, candied fruit (due to the port finish?) that draw towards the red fruits and a little minty side!
    • Finish
      long finish on the same aromas

    A very nice whisky, smokey peaty flavour with a nice port aftertaste.

    First tried in 2013 and it was excellent - strong port finish! Bought more in 2018 while travelling and the port taste was very weak - suspect rushed / reused casks with reduced port flavour. A shame really, but if you can get an older one - VERY GOOD!
