Review: This was a surprising find as I was in LHR airport about to fly off to Hong Kong. Saw it and it sounded interesting, especially due to it's link with Scapa Flow and the fact I was going to be off doing some diving in Thailand. Having been drinking whisky for more years than I care to think of, I can honestly say that this is a great whisky, and quite different. Along with the sweet notes, there are very definite levels of saltiness which dance well together in an amazingly complex but beautiful way in the mouth. I will, without doubt, be buying this again - It's made it into my top ten without even breaking into a sweat (or is that where the saltiness came from?)!

Producer Information

The Orkney Islands are steeped in history and folklore, indeed Scapa Flow where the distillery sits still hides the ghostly wrecks of the German fleet, scuttled after the end of World War 1. The distillery was opened in 1885 and embarked on a century of production involving few changes of ownership. It was silent for two years from 1934 and was rebuilt in 1959 with
the floor maltings ceasing production a few years later. Further internal improvements were made in 1978 including the installation of a Lomond type still.
The water supply carries a considerable amount of peat from the Lingro Burn and local springs, as a result of which the barley it uses is left unpeated.
