Bursting with the flavours of ripe cherries, bitter dark cocoa, fresh honeycomb and salted peat smoke, this iconic single malt is full-bodied yet refined. We think a bottle of 18 Year Old is a timeless gift that will never go out of fashion. Looking for a classic way to show you care? Look no further!
With its unique flavour profile driven by the high ratio of first-fill sherry seasoned European and American oak casks that we use, our 18 Year Old is the most consistently and highly awarded of our whiskies. In 2021, it received a Gold in the International Spirits Challenge as well as an ‘Extraordinary’ Ultimate Recommendation (with a score of 96) in the Ultimate Spirits Challenge, accompanied by the comment, ‘Simply put, this is as good as it gets.’
If you’d like to let someone special know that they’re ‘as good as it gets’ this festive season, then maybe you’ve found the perfect gift? Or why not buy a bottle as an indulgent treat for yourself. 18 Year Old is, of course, superb on its own but why not try it accompanied by a bowl of ripe cherries (if they’re in season where you are) or for a really intriguing flavour experience, squares of dark chocolate – the higher the cocoa content the better – and just a few flakes of sea salt. For a savoury experience, 18 Year Old is fantastic with a handful of honey-roast nuts (we like cashews) or for a bigger snack, try pairing it with a hard, nutty cheese such as Westray Wife (if you’re local to Orkney) or a Manchego or Comte from your local deli.
