Torabhaig Allt Gleann
Torabhaig Allt Gleann Single Malt Whisky
The Distillery at Torabhaig is the second ever licenced Single Malt Scotch Whisky distillery on the Isle of Skye. The Excise Act of 1823 first sanctioned legal whisky distilling in Scotland almost 200 years ago, with the first licence on Skye being granted not long thereafter, so one could say it was about time.
Single Malt Scotch Whisky is inextricably linked to its place of origin, perhaps more so than any other product. The water, the land, the climate, all play a role in the character of the whisky. All these factors are also vitally important in planning a new distillery. Simply put, you cannot just build a distillery anywhere.

It has a delicate smoky character on the nose combining with citrus fruit aromas, green apples and a malty sweetness. The palate shows a very pleasant mixture of honey, malt, light peat, cigar ash and a slight saltiness to the finish.
