(70cl, 46%)

Cask Orkney 18 Year Old (A.D. Rattray)

Cask Orkney 18yo Bottling Note

An 18 year old single malt distilled on Orkney (though the exact distillery that produced it remains a mystery), bottled by A.D. Rattray. The whisky was drawn from ex-bourbon casks and bottled at 46% ABV without any chill-filtration or additional colours.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Beeswax, salted caramel, flapjacks and buttery sultana.

Palate: Continued notes of baked goods and caramel, now paired with a light waft of sea spray and sharp citrus.

Finish: Whispers of old oak and oily walnut.

Lovely fireside dram
Recently purchased this, has a lovely nose, rich and buttery on the palate, with a nutty finish! Can’t fault it, would recommend it, very easy to drink.

No. Nothing here.

This is what you get with H.P minus the caramel, heavy cask influence, and stupid marketing - and it's not a lot.

For an 18 y/o it is awful, even a blend would deliver more. Yes, there is a lot of very subtle, careful, light whisky here... Maybe you like delicate etherial whiskies, but that's not what I'm looking for.

Long may the 'Cask' series continue
Highland Park at a steep discount and improved quality (higher volume, no chill-filtration, no fake colour, no silly LARPer branding) - what more could one ask for? There are some things to be aware of however, unlike official bottlings, this relatively unblended production can be a little 'rough', but it's nothing that doesn't clear up with a little water and time. What initially appears aggressively cask-driven and spirit-heavy opens up into a miracle of fresh fruit flavours with the light peated backing receding the more patient you are with it.
