Rich and beautifully balanced, deep and aromatic, and infused with a delicate sweetness, this truly exceptional whisky is the product of just 5 refill casks originally laid down before 1979. These casks were brought together in 2008 and filled into first-fill sherry seasoned American oak casks to intensify the flavour over a further 10 years of maturation. Orkney’s unforgiving climate pairs well with the distillery’s unforgiving demand for the finest quality casks. The refill casks that originally held this whisky are ideal for a long, slow maturation imparting an oaky flavour which doesn’t dominate, while the first-fill sherry seasoned casks in which the whisky completed its maturation, bring a depth of character and nutty, fruit-filled notes of sherry to the flavour. A very rare whisky for a very rare whisky connoisseur.
