  1. Armando did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    SMWS notes: We found this one simple, direct, pure and totally beautiful. A vividly expressive example of this great Orcadian distillate. Full of crisp sea air, crushed chalk, brittle minerals, herbal peat smoke, heather ales, white pepper, beach pebbles, waxed jackets and dried wildflowers. With water we got shy notes of sandalwood emerging, then lightly smoked herbs, old oily rags, seaweed flakes in ramen broth and a saline, umami-tinged peat smoke. The palate was riddled with beautifully elegant, herbal peat smoke. Some langoustine grilling over hot coals, lemon cordial, smoked white fish, lanolin, hessian, creel nets and tarry old rope. Water brought metal polish and a hyper pure, vivid seashore quality. Heathery peat smoke, soot and minerals. At 17 years of age, we combined selected bourbon hogsheads from this distillery. We then returned the single malt into a variety of different casks to develop further. This is one of those casks.
