Black Friday Whisky 2018
Fierce, yet refined

This Black Friday, in what is fast becoming tradition here at The Whisky Exchange, we’re delighted to present an exclusive, one-off single malt, bottled just for us by Elixir Distillers.

This limited-edition bottling is a beautiful example of the complexity that this mystery distillery’s spirit is known for, even while displaying a brooding depth reflective of the island’s rich history. Fantastic value-for-money and particularly approachable, this whisky would make an exceptional gift for fledgling and established single-malt fans alike, or will simply add a little wilderness to your whisky shelf.

A full-bodied dram with all the rugged charm you’d expect of Scotland’s Northern Isles: wrap up warm and wander the wild moors of Orkney.

Tasting Notes

From Billy Abbott (The Whisky Exchange)

  • Nose Heather-covered moors on a chilly day. A bonfire's almost burnt itself out nearby. Crispy leaves and drooping ferns underfoot as you walk home. Coal smoke drifts from the chimneys. Honeysuckle as you walk down the path, and smoky, dusty, bitter-sweet cocoa powder as you open the polished wooden door. Chocolate flapjacks with candied rose petals are on the coffee table, apple pie sits on the kitchen counter, next to a cooling cast iron stove. Soft spice and citrus rise from freshly prepared clove-studded oranges.
  • Palate It's tea time. Wax-polished oak tables and sooty fireplaces. Rich orange syrup poured over spiced fruit loaf – nutmeg, cinnamon and mixed peel. Stewed apples and pears with a handful of sultanas. Heather honey and fruity caramel. The chocolate flapjacks return, with even more fragrant flowers. Buttery pastry and coal dust drifts in from the kitchen, where a rich and sticky fruitcake sits, with a plate of liquorice sticks on the side.
  • Finish It's back to the meadows. Bracken, gorse flowers and brown leaves crunch underfoot, as a wisp of smoke wafts across the hill.
  • Comment It's Kirkwall on an autumn day. Coal’s burning in the fireplace and and we've got a serious tea to eat after a walk. It's much more fun than heading to the supermarket to fight over cut-price TVs.
