Independent bottler A.D. Rattray releases Cask Orkney, distilled at an Orkney distillery which is not Scapa!
Cask Orkney 18 yo was released earlier this week and is an addition to A.D Rattray’s portfolio, in the same range as the Cask Islay they released back in 2014. However, this new release has an age statement.
Age: 18 yo
Cask type: ex-Bourbon
Nose: Subtle and soft, with green apple and nutmeg, wood spice, sea salt and a hazy smoke.
Palate: Toffee, peach and apricot, with a rich velvety texture, sweet background smoke and a dry nutty finish.
Finish: A fine spirit, complex and balanced.
