CASK No. 4.252

Lightly peated

An Orkney beekeeper’s dram

Age 12 Ans
Date Distilled 11 Mai 2006
Cask Type Refill Ex-Bourbon Hogshead
Région Highland
Outturn 1 de 261 Bouteilles
ABV 61.3%


The nose evokes the Orkney islands – distant hill-burn of heather and gorse, a fisherman’s flower garden (marigold, nasturtium), the sea nearby – and hints of barbequed prawns and scallops and cold-smoked cod roe. The big chewy palate has charcoaled driftwood, slightly burnt maple-pecan pastries and heather honey; also peppered mackerel and salted roast pork and a good after-glow of embers. The reduced nose picks up various things (from bandages, coal-tar and soot to dried flowers, lemon puffs and vanilla) but the strong combination of honey and smoke suggests a busy Orkney beekeeper. The palate now – honey, toffee, liquorice root, ash and smoke.
