\THE LATEST RELEASE FROM ROBERTSONS OF THER OWN LABEL BOTTLING.  BOTTLED AT 53.8% ABV WITH A LIMITED NUMBER OF ONLY 334 BOTTLES.  CASK STRENGTH, NON-CHILL FILTERED, NATURAL COLOUR AND FROM A SINGLE SHERRY HOGSHEAD. PART OF THE AGREEMENT OF BUYING THIS CASK WAS THAT THE DISTILLERY NAME CANNOT BE USED.  THAT IS WHY WE HAVE CALLED IT 58.97° LATITUDE.  WHAT WE CAN SAY IS IT IS FROM ORKNEY.

NOSE

THIS REFILL HOGSHEAD SHOWS A NEAR PERFECT BALANCE OF FRUIT AND ORCADIAN PEAT O THE NOSE, FLOWING FROM PEACHES AND MANDARIN TO COFFEE CREAM AND FLORAL SMOKE.

TASTE

THE PALATE DELIVERS PERFECTLY WITH THE PEAT SMOKE BALANCED HARMONIOUSLY WITH HONEY, CITRUS, CARAMEL AND WOOD SPICE.  THE THICK MOUTH FEEL OF THIS VISCOUS WHISY MUST ALSO BE REMARKED ON

FINISH

THE LINGERING FINISH HAS HONEY TOAST AND DARK CHOCOLATE NOTES DEVELOP ON THE PALATE.

AS WITH EVERY CASK BOUGHT BY ROBERTSONS FOR THEIR AWARD WINNING RANGE, THEY ARE SINGLE CASK, NATURAL COLOUR, NON CHILL FILTERED AND AT CASK STRENGTH.  EACH BOTTLE IS INDIVIDUALLY NUMBERED ENSURING THAT THE BOTTLE YOU PURCHASE IS THE ONLY ONE IN THE WORLD.

THE LABEL PAYS HOMAGE TO THE PROVENANCE OF THE WHISKY, IDENTIFYING THE YEAR OF DISTILLATION AND YEAR OF BOTTLING.  EACH WHISKY IS COLOR COORDINATED TO IDENTIFY THE REGION OF ITS ORIGIN.  FOR THIS HIGHLAND WHISKY IT IS PURPLE.

ROBERTSONS OWN LABEL BOTTLINGS INCLUDE MACDUFF, MILTONDUFF, TULLIBARDINE, BLAIR ATHOL, BENRINNES, CRAIGELLACHIE, 58.97° LATTITUDE, CAOL ILA, TOBERMORY AND WILL SOON INCLUDE GLEN ORD.

ORKNEY IS ON THE NORTH COAST AND IS THE HOME TO TWO GREAT DISTILLERIES. HIGHLAND PARK IS THE OLDER OF THE TWO HAVING BEEN ESTABLISHED IN 1798. YOU GET A SENSE OF HISTORY AND CLASS FROM THE MINUTE YOU ENTER THE DISTILLERY GATES. SCAPA IS SOMEWHAT YOUNGER, HAVING BEEN ESTABLISHED IN 1885 BUT IT ALSO ENJOYS A STRONG SENSE OF HISTORY AND A GREAT TASTING BREW.
