Compass Box Orchard House Blended Malt Scotch
Orchard House gathers together some of the fruitiest malts Scotland has to offer, including whiskies from the Linkwood and Clynelish distilleries; what’s more, Compass Box sourced many of these whiskies as new spirit and laid them down in their own oak casks. A monument to fresh fruitiness in Scotch whisky which has been many years in the making. When neat or poured over a large ice cube, Orchard House makes for an outstanding pre-dinner malt. It will ably partner amber and pale ales, as well as swathes of soft cheeses.
Aromas of apple and pear dominate, with hints of pineapple, lemon and lime zest, and Earl Grey tea. Take a sip and note the malty and gingery flavours. These are soon joined by honey, wild strawberries and vanilla shortbread. Bottled at 46% abv.
