Taste note

  • Colour:

    A fairly full deep reddy copper with lighter gold tones running through.

  • Nose:

    A fuller dunnage / old oak cask nose going on here, with just a touch of lactic acid, which tales off thankfully after a few moments leaving eucalyptus and cedar wood notes along with sweet autumn berries and gentle sherry christmasness and spice. The Complex peat smoke Maes you want to dip your nose in more.

  • Palate:

    Pretty thick mouthfeel here, at first you think it’s smooth, but then spices kick in reminding you of Thorfinn’s power! It’s sweet, with wispy heathery sweetness amongst the gentle peat smoke. There’s American Oak sherry casks giving a menthol hit that turns up stronger in the finish.

  • Finish:

    A fresh slightly minty menthol kick, yet fruity and sweet. It’s fairly old and complex and stays around your palate for ages. Delicious

  • Conclusion:

    A slightly off-putting nose for me at first but that clears given time to breath (you should give old whisky the time it deserves). A very expensive single malt whisky but a pleasure to try nonetheless.
    Thorfinn was a man of much power and influence, who at one stage controlled the whole of the Orkney Islands. The Orkneyinga Saga described him as a great chief, the tallest and strongest of men whose remains are buried in St Magnus Cathedral on Orkney.
