Buttered crumpets sprinkled with caster sugar…
Cadenhead Original Collection An Orkney Distillery 2016 6yo
A young Orkney dram from who knows where?
But what I’ve read on the internet, looks like it is an undiluted Highland Park. And a very young one at that.
From TwoWhiskyBros, “The palate begins with zesty lemon, runny honey, buttered crumpets sprinkled with caster sugar and slivered almonds. Theres a subtle smoke in the background, hay bales, custard cream biscuits moving into drier oak on the finish. There’s some young spirit yeastiness coming through, however it’s pretty subtle for such a young whisky. It’s also got a nice and creamy mouthfeel. There’s also some caramel and fizzy pineapple juice appearing as we let the dram develop”.
Official notes read, “Our tasting panel commented on the delicious creamy nature of this dram, showcasing prominent notes of budding gorse, custard creams, heather honey and stroopwafels to name a few”.
