The Orkney islands are off the northern tip of Scotland: beautiful, rugged and remote. There is a strong Scandinavian influence here, and this Whitlaw whisky has some Viking in its DNA. As well as a honeyed sweetness like mead, Whitlaw uses locally sourced peat to dry its barley. Orcadian peat is dryer and less medicinal than the peat used on Islay, so the smokiness on this whisky is gentler and more floral.
