Whisky Reviews for Secret Orkney 2000 LEG

6 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.07 points

  1. wisekycourse scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    nose:
    very moist undergrowth, slightly salty, malt, a little damp heather just at the entrance to a port
    malt as well, wood and some smoke
    mouth:
    strong peppery spices, then some almonds and its core, bitterness, tonic herbs, fruit on apple and green pear
    a slightly chocolatey return, a little gentian, the salty side stands out strongly on the herbs and the wood, soot with a bit of tar and return of the bitterness, freshly ground white pepper and a little vanilla!
    final:
    woody, core, soot, bitterness of the core, salt for a medium finish that gives a salty, non-iodized sea air.

    Some old school HP profile in there it seems, really well done
    • Nose
      91 91
      Perfectly integrated alcohol !
      Here we have some swamp, wet woods, iodine, honey, that’s gentle and complex, evolving when giving some time
    • Taste
      92 92
      It’s powerful, complex and alcohol to perfectly integrated one more time ... good job !
      Wee smoke, iodine , swamp and wet woods , honey, a little bit of peat too, we are in the continuity of the nose.
    • Finish
      90 90
      Long finish on the swamp/iodine. Powerful and nicely integrated.
      That’s a rather old school Orkney profile here, and really nicely done !
