The Orkney distillery is one of the long lasting brands on the market. Among the many special and limited editions, this The Dark set the path of a new series dedicated to whisky color hues. The intense dark hue, named embernectar, derives from 17 years in rich sherry butts that maximized the typical peated and salty notes of the northernmost whisky in Scotland.
Peat and smoky scents are enriched by medicinal herbs, cloves, and cherry compote. On the palate peat, coffee beans, and wood spices, together with lemon peel and hazelnut. Peppery finish.
