This super heavily-peated whisky is peated to a level of 140ppm. It is aged 5 years and is finished in barrels of the French red Bordeaux wine, Pétrus, a highly-regarded red wine from Pomerol. Named after Orpheus, a legendary musician in Greek mythology; the tin this whisky is packaged in is red for the flames of the underworld where Orpheus went to rescue his dead wife, Eurydice, which he did by playing his enticing music. Sadly, he failed to follow the only condition given (don't look back) to ensure their safe return and she vanished forever.
