ORKNEY 12 Year Old Reserve Casks Elixir 48%


This single malt from an anonymous distillery in the Orkney Islands was distilled in 2006 and bottled in 2019 from a batch of only five hogshead casks. With an angel share of just 6.8%, this is a fresh, herbaceous dram that beautifully reflects the coastal landscape where it comes from. The Single Malts of Scotland Reserve Casks is a taste exploration. Bottled in small batches of four to six barrels. Each bottling shows the variety of styles and flavors found across Scotland, and the differences in share of angels by region. Bottled at 48% without adding color and without cold filtration, the barrels of Reserve Casks are intended to suit both novice and expert palates.

Nose: Tarts, sour fruits and citrus. Lime juice and sea salt sprinkled on peach slices. Margaritas and smoked meats served in a cabin by the sea.
Palate: A little sweeter than the nose, it shows a soft vanilla, but still with a slightly peaty and salty character that emerges from it. Herbal notes of wild arugula and parsley are offset by cream and butter.
Overall: Long, pine shoots and wood shavings, followed by ground black pepper and grilled vegetables.
