AN ORKNEY DISTILLERY 2005
17 YEARS OLD
This release has been matured in a single hogshead for 17 years before being bottled at natural cask strength.
Nose: Immediately coastal with hewn rocks, sea breeze and prominent heathery peat smoke. Vegetal notes of leaf mulch, clay and putty follow, supported by sweeter aromas of honey and cooking apples.
Palate: An oily mouthfeel delivers a fulsome island smoke consisting of bonfire ash, sack cloth, preserved lemon, hillside flowers and limestone cliffs.
Finish: Lingering heather-imbued smoke, herbal teas and coastal minerality.
