    Tasting Notes By Jim McEwan

    Colour  Luminous goldBody  Mellow, mature, majestic. The spirit is simply stunning, full of character and elegance.Nose  The coastal aromas are very evident. A hint of brine, seasalt on oilskins - fisherman´s sweaters, peat smoke and bracken. Then given a little time it all changes, like the Kirkwall climate. Now it´s lavender and bluebells with a sprinkling of sherbet. Dive deeper and your reward is tablet and a citrus marzipan. Finally it´s the lightly charred oak note that closes the show. Aromatically outstanding. Palate  The peat fire heat hits the back of the throat with a smoky dryness, then the citrus soft fruits wash in behind, giving an amazing sweet/dry flavour to the tastebuds. The oak is really generous in proportion, but in impressive harmony with both fruits and flame. An island beauty. Totally captivating.Finish  Fades beautifully, leaving you with the tang of the sea.

    The nose is terrific the taste is not good at all for my taste.
    • Nose
      Absolutely fantastic nose, one of the best. I clearly smell raspberry juice but then better with a whole array of perfectly integrated wood related smells. A hint oof peat too and some fresh paint which I liked.
    • Taste
      ... so disappointing, old tired wood.
