Whisky Reviews for Orkney Single Malt 2000 EL

  1. Andytka3 scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    N- Chalky with lush of honeyed chocolate that evolved to charred wood and old leather pouch. Intriguing fish oil, thick scott's emulsion nuance in the middle, but not developing further for more excitement. Candy, wet grass and more leather rising at the tail. (87/21)

    P- Fat waxy coat intensify the rigidness. Multi herbs / spices infused honey swings in with touch of bitter chocolate, whiff of sweet orange and citrus. Plenty of body for more but remains thin and shorts on width on the palate. Good distillates that could potentially raised better in better barrel. (86/20)

    F- Medium, echoing spiciness with waxy boiled orange, butter and citrus zest. Feel restrained overall, full of possibility but not fulfilling. (86/20)
