The dark and light are concepts that exist in opposition, yet together create a perfect balance, and inspired our limited edition releases of the same name. Presented in a majestic serpent-dragon embossed bottle, The Light 17 Year Old was created to celebrate warm summer days in Orkney. (Yes. They do exist.)
Made to honour a time when we emerge from winter hibernation, ready to embrace the fresh air, clear skies and long days of summer, the whisky is light and bright, with a delicious warm-season-friendly palate having been left to mature for 17 years in refill American oak casks which have a more gentle influence that first-fill European oak casks. The result is a fine balance of caramelised pear, nutmeg, vanilla, cedarwood and lightly smoked peat… Orcadian Summer in a bottle.
