About The Whisky
A softly smoky Orcadian whisky (we can't tell you which distillery it's from, but that should be a big hint) with a tasty balance of fresh fruit and smoky chocolate notes.
Billy Abbott, The Whisky Exchange
Barbecued apples and a touch of fruit jelly to start: lemon, orange and pineapple. Smoky cocoa nib notes develop, along with wisps of wood smoke and dark milk chocolate. The orangey notes take over, joined by damp oak, singed raisins, and dark and spicy fruit cake. Candied cherries poke out of the cake and drag things towards nutty Florentines, mince-pie filling, candied lemon peel and dark-chocolate-covered orange segments.
Chocolate biscuits, smoky orange oil, sweet apple and soft wood smoke lead. Coal smoke floats underneath and hazelnut-studded chocolate notes roll through the middle. The damp oak of the nose reappears with a touch of forest floor, oat cakes and toasted rye bread, before being sweetened up by plump raisins, brown-sugar-dosed baking spice, a thin slice of rich fruit cake and a cinnamon-spiced oatmeal-and-raisin cookie.
Soft charcoal notes linger as candied apple, chocolate biscuits and cinnamon spice slowly fade.
