Mossburn Distillers, has today announced the launch of a new limited-edition bottling, from its Isle of Skye based Torabhaig Distillery.
Torabhaig Allt Gleann Batch Strength (61.1% ABV) is a peated single malt Scotch whisky, which was matured in a combination of American oak, first-fill Bourbon barrels and re-fill whisky barrels, for at least five years.

This latest Allt Gleann bottling, completes the current chapter of the Torabhaig Legacy Series, which charts the journey and has been developing the distillery style and character, ahead of its 10 Year Old release in 2028.
Bottled at batch strength, this release shows the confidence that this young distillery has in the quality of its whisky and highlights their emerging signature style. Torabhaig tames heavily peated grains to produce a dram that balances strength with refinement to accentuate the floral, fragrant character of the whisky.
Allt Gleann is named after one of the natural spring water sources that feed the Torabhaig Distillery, which sits on a historical site on a rugged coastline. While the distillery has only been operational since January 2017, it is only the second single malt distillery on the Isle of Skye in almost 200 years.
Commenting on the launch, Neil Macleod Mathieson, Torabhaig Whiskymaker, said: “Torabhaig Allt Gleann Batch Strength is our way of bidding a fond farewell to Allt Gleann and closing out this chapter of Torabhaig’s journey to 10 year old. This is the last time we’ll get to see this specific style of Torabhaig, so we set aside a few hundred casks of this expression distilled during the experimental phases of 2017 and 2018 to release at its natural strength."
He went onto say: “As with Allt Gleann, we’re transparent on the bottle about everything, from the variety of barley to the type of yeast to residual ppm – and not just in grain ppm. We want to take whisky lovers on this journey of experimentation with us and are confident about sharing our findings about flavour as we’re building this liquid legacy.”
Limited to 2,500 bottles, Torabhaig Allt Gleann Batch Strength, will be available later this month from specialist retailers, for a RRP of £75.00.
