Orkney Islant 13yo 2004 Single Malt Scotch Whisky

We bottled this cask with our friends from Helvetica Bar in Perth, the talented Stormie Mills designed the label with his great piece "The Conversation" and for what we know, the whisky is from Orkney....but does not seem likely to be Sacapa....you know what i mean "wink", "wink"

Tasting Notes
Appearance: Rich straw or even pale yellow in colour; oily legs but not syrupy.
Nose: Leatherwood honey, fresh straw and daffodil, soft charcoal smoke comes through. Almost an oil pastel
note, nuttiness and soft apple characteristics. Maybe even a butter popcorn note as well. Grassy
peatiness.
Palate: Again with light honey. Maybe orange marmalade. Some tropical fruit, banana, cereals, and a creaminess
comes through. Soft lavender like peat finishes nicely and levels out the sweetness.
Finish: Good length, peat develops nicely with tannic dryness. Subtle tropical fruits and cream. Last notes of
an earthiness or tobacco.
Mouthfeel: Oily yet also quite tannic and dry on the back palate. Almost jammy. Good width on the palate

Other Comments:
Extraordinarily well balanced. Satisfyingly so. The lingering peat is wonderful to deconstruct. Such a
unique peat as Orkney’s is, its a wonderfully well rounded whisky. The sherry cask displays beautiful
fruits yet is also not too overpowering. Just one word to sum it up: balanced.
