A secret single malt from Orkney, matured in an ex-sherry firkin.
Nose: Lots of sweetness on the nose, with toasted almonds & floral, heathery overtones. A wave of peat comes through but is veiled in damp slate and sea air.
Palate: The heather persists, with other floral spices giving way to honeyed sweetness & some subtle dark chocolate. Citrus fruits develop over time, along with the peat which takes the form of bonfire smoke.
Finish: Warm & drying, the finish is long & smoky. Some green notes persist, along with the oak tannins & the delicate spices.
