3 users have left 3 reviews for this whisky. Average rating is 87.67 points.

  1. holborndrinker did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    A rich and full-bodied whisky from a popular Orkney distillery, the palate is full of raisins and currants, backed up by juicier tropical- and orchard-fruit notes. Vanilla and oak flavours mingle with a soft peat smoke and a touch of cocoa bitterness.

    Is Orkney in the Highlands - TWE think so.

    ABOUT THE WHISKY
    A rich and fruity 18 Year Old Highland single malt from a mystery Island distillery, it has been matured exclusively in a single refill hogshead before being bottled in 2019 by The Whisky Exchange.

    Tasting Notes Billy Abbott, The Whisky Exchange

    NOSE
    Rich and fruity. Notes of raisins and currants are hidden behind mango, papaya and smoky hessian sacks. Malty toffee builds through the middle, along with a touch of chocolatey smoke.

    PALATE
    The hessian sacks are back, filled with smoky dark chocolate. There's fruitiness following not far behind, led by raisins. A bed of toffee and apples lies underneath and rich chocolate notes build.

    FINISH
    Baked apples, gently spicy oak and a touch of cocoa linger.

    COMMENT
    An island favourite, with gentle but richly chocolatey smoke at its core. That's surrounded by fruit, spice and sweet toffee.
