A delightfully rich, naturally golden hue with remarkable clarity and brightness.
Reminiscent of thick, opaque honey but with attractive notes of lemongrass, sandalwood and a variety of aromatic spices.
Delicious complexity; the citrus evident on the nose develops into dried orange peel. The aromatic spices are revealed as ginger, cloves and camphor.
A lasting impression of rich spiciness is the legacy of a single malt that is extremely long and surprisingly sweet.
The second of the Orcadian Vintage series, 1968 Vintage was released in November 2009.
