Single Malts of Scotland, Reserve Cask Orkney 13YO (700ml)

$150.00

Single Malts of Scotland,

Reserve Casks, Orkney 13YO 

48% ABV

 

A small batch of four casks comprising of two sherry butts and two ex-Bourbon barrels from an unnamed distillery on the Orkney Islands, was used to create this single malt, distilled in 2008 and aged for more than 13 years. This is a full, luscious whisky with elements of fresh mint and touches of smoke.

 

Region: Islands

 

Tasting Notes:

Nose: Fresh peppermint leaves create a cooling herbaceousness that mingles with elegant heathery smoke. Velvety dark chocolate takes centre stage with the soft, grassy smoke remaining in the background.

Taste: Florentine biscuits fresh from the oven, bring to the fore sweet golden syrup, bright candied ginger, cinnamon and dark chocolate. Smouldering heather wafts across the palate but it doesn’t pull focus from the lusciousness of spice and chocolate

Finish: Morello cherries steeped in syrup are served with a dollop of cream and freshly dark chocolate shavings. A freshly brewed peppermint tea keeps the dram beautifully balanced as it finishes long and fresh

Non Chill Filtered, No Colour Added
