Whisky Reviews for Orkney 2003 Arc

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.25 points

  1. ballunder scored this whisky 87 points Member Senior

    A musky nose. Salt, Iodine, mixed with bitter persimmon. On the palette, the entry is quite potent and enjoyable. This whisky has a great mouthfeel and a chewy, oily, texture. Honey and caramel competes against bitter wood spice and neither side wins. Salt, iodine, same as the nose and some tannin. Well, she's not the best HP I've tasted but she's still not bad. There's good flavor there, it's just a little unbalanced and muted by what is some rather prominent wood bitterness imparted from a pretty lively cask.
