    Hmmm which Orkney Distillery is this? After I opened the bottle I immediately knew it. A NAS HP in cask strength? Hell yeah, where can I sign up? The price to performance ratio is amazing and even though it might not be the oldest, or most refined whisky, I absolutely love it. No age statement but definitely on the younger side. It has a bright yellow/gold color like a white port or sherry. Nice texture and for that price? Go get it and I absolutely love it!

      The nose starts very flowery and sweet but the typical HP maritime and peaty notes are there as well.

      Flowers, Rosewater, Elderflower, Pears, Peaches, Sweet white grapes, granny Smith, apricots, cotton candy and vanilla notes give way to seagrassy notes and typical maritime smoke.

      You can also smell that it is cask strength but the alcohol seems very well integrated.

      Starts very sweet and flowery again, that gives note to some herbal notes followed by wonderful cheesecake Vanilla and maple syrup sweetness and light smoke.

      Elderflower, vanilla, pepper, grassy, Pears, apricots, leather, tobacco, caramel followed by the subtle Highland park Peat and maritime notes.

      Again I get the strong apple, pear, apricot and white grape taste but it is immediately replaced by strong maritime tastes like seaweed and smoked salmon. Not as sweet as the taste but you have the sweetness lingering in the background
