The Cooper's Choice range of single cask whiskies from Scotland's finest distilleries are releases from the Family owned Independent Bottlers; The Vintage Malt Whisky Company. The range is a homage to the passion and skill of the Coopers, the craftsmen, who build the barrels for maturation of Scotch Whisky. The range focuses on the impact of maturation in oak, and includes several obscure and rare wood finishes.
This 'Secret Orkney' single malt scotch whisky was distilled at an undisclosed Orkney distillery in 2010. A majority of it's maturation was spent in American Oak casks before a finish in Jamaican Rum casks. Only 360 bottles from the out-turn.
From the bottler: "Nose: Heather honeyed light smoke with vanilla and fruit. Palate: Gingery heather and caramelised banana amidst a background of light smoky spice."
Bottled at 56% ABV.
