Berry Bros. & Rudd 2006 Orkney 17-Year-Old, Oloroso Sherry Finish, Cask #5051, Highland Single Malt Whisky, 57.1%
A masterclass in peated whisky finished in Oloroso from the team at Berry Bros. & Rudd. This "Orkney" reputedly comes from the remote Islands most famous distillery (cough-HighlandPark-cough...), and has been matured to perfection by one of the country's oldest independent bottlers of Single Malt Whisky. A full expression of the Orkney's notoriously floral, trufy peat style, wrapped up in rolling waves of flavour from the oloroso sherry cask finish.
Tasting Note from the chaps at BB&R:
The interplay of peat and Sherry commences immediately with aromas of tarry peat smoke, rich Oloroso Sherry, iodine and prunes, with a suggestion of fireworks and beef jerky. The palate is equally robust and complex with Caol Ila’s sooty peat smoke wrapped in layers of dried fruit and citrus, with notes of vanilla pods, spice markets and salty coastal breeze building with time. Waves of full, oily Sherry wood roll across the finish, with lasting peat smoke. A robust and vigorous dram, best enjoyed with robust friends over vigorous conversation.
