Talisker Port Ruighe. Image courtesy Diageo. This limited-edition Talisker was finished in Port casks, and the nose shows it with fruity notes of raspberry cobbler, cherries, peach pie, and pears, along with allspice, clove, and red grapes. The taste has a good balance of fruit and spices, with a cinnamon burst and touches of peach pie, nutmeg, and honey. The cinnamon fades to reveal dark touches of black licorice, black tea with honey, cherry cobbler, and brown sugar. The finish is long and slightly tart with a touch of licorice, plums, and allspice.
