The casks impart an astonishing flavour to the whisky as it matures – at once dark and full bodied with a rich and nutty spiciness, yet brimming with sweet dried fruits, cinder toffee and soft fudge. 25 years encased in oak has not only created a whisky with impressive depths, but time has delivered a vibrant sweetness too. Renowned whisky writer F. Paul Pacult named it Best Spirit in the World in the 2013 Spirit Journal.
Nose: Soft, plump cherries, toasted walnut, crumbly pastry and brown sugar.
Palate: Stewed fruits, sweet vanilla and some classic Orkney peat. A hint of spiciness, not too much though.
Finish: Sweet, long and delicious.
