This small batch Orcadian nectar was transferred into a first-fill bourbon barrel after nine years. The nose is bright and innocent – gorse and heather, singed lemon peel and custard tarts; a trickle of incense smoke shyly appears. The palate; more gallus than innocent, discovers pineapple humps, apricot Danishes, toffee, honey on toast, sweet coconut and oiled wood. The reduced nose gets iced lemon cupcakes, leather and jasmine hedgerows – a ramble from the heather moor to the shore. The palate now discovers rhubarb rock, green apple and heather stems dipped in heather honey; the finish finds green wood, black tea and quince jelly.
