Highland (Orkney Islands) Single Malt Scotch from independent bottler, Gordon & MacPhail. This is a beautiful example of a light and balanced Island malt.
A Gordon & MacPhail bottling of Scapa single malt from Orkney, released as part of the Distillery labels series. It was distilled in 2005 and left to age in first-fill bourbon barrels until 2018, when it was bottled at 43% ABV. The label is enjoyably retro-styled, featuring an old, Viking ship. The people of the Orkneys and Shetland Islands are closer related to the Vikings than the perfidious Albion and like to show it.
Nose: Sharp green apple, melted butter, a touch of spent match underneath fresh malt notes.
Palate: Creamy vanilla and runny honey. Citrus acidity develops.
Finish: Chocolate biscuits, orange peel, caraway.
