Orkney 'Old Malt Cask' 2006 / 14 Year Old Hunter Laing's Whisky 700ml
Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky
How well do you know your Orkney-based distilleries? You can have fun guessing which one this single malt came from – independently bottled for Hunter Laing's Old Malt Cask collection! Distilled in May 2006, the whisky was filled into a single refill hogshead, where it slumbered soundly for 14 years. In 2021, the cask was opened, releasing a total outturn of 177 bottles.
Nose: Butterscotch, zesty peels, and floral fruit, with sweet blossom honey and wood shavings.
Palate: More citrus with candied orange, sugary apple crumble, and clotted cream. Hints of heather poke through, with oily, mouth-coating malt.
Finish: Rounded notes of juicy orchard fruits and waxy peels, with a peppery warmth, lingering sweet oak, and dense caramel.
