Dark only exists in contrast to light: as one appears, the other disappears. Together they create something greater than themselves. This 17 Year Old celebrates winter on Orkney; a time to escape the wild weather and share nights filled with stories, myths and Viking folklore.
This rich and powerful single malt has been exclusively matured in sherry seasoned oak casks and comes presented in an embossed black glass bottle. The serpent dragon design on the bottle takes its inspiration from the great Norse sagas, embracing both the high sun of the summer solstice and the low sun of the winter solstice, while the runic writing reflects the ancient carvings of our Viking ancestors, here on Orkney.
Embernectar. It is a word we have created to describe this whisky’s unique flavour profile. It’s definitely easier than saying: distant campfires, toasted almonds, dried fruits, cinnamon, cedarwood, fruitcake, and light smoke.
