This cask bottling, distilled in November 1999 at an undisclosed Orkney distillery, spent eighteen years maturing in a 2nd fill bourbon barrel. It was bottled at cask strength in May 2018 at 54.8% ABV. Cask #453 yielded 186 bottles for retail sale.
Color: White tea
Nose: Pleasing light peat to open followed by a slight medicinal note, linen closets, honey drizzled over fresh cantaloupe, roasted hazelnuts, and lit tinder sticks
Palate: Floral smoke with hints of grass and cereal with a building vegetal quality, dried mangoes and melons, cask char mid palate, beach stones, pleasantly salty
Finish: White chocolate, sea salt, ground grey pepper
On the label: A perfect balance between lightly peated malt and a rich melon-like fruitiness. Quite different from the distillery’s offering of the same age. The ex-bourbon maturation allows a different side of the distillery’s house style to shine through.
