Unnamed Orkney 2005 Ultimate
“The Ultimate Whisky Company” was founded in 1994 when Han and Maurice van Wees started selecting their finest casks of Single Malt for bottling.
Only the best casks were good enough for “The Ultimate” and in the beginning even miniature bottles were made.
Because the whisky is bottled without chill filtration, all the original flavours remain inside.
Also, no caramel is added so the colour always corresponds with the originating cask.
An “honest Single Malt” according to Van Wees standards.
The Ultimate range consists of about 25 different bottlings, from all regions of Scotland and on a rare occacion even from outside of Scotland.
Each bottle is numbered and all cask details are mentioned on the label.
In addition to the 46% non-chill-filtered and cask strength versions there are also some "Rare Reserve" bottlings which feature only the most special malt whiskies.
Since 1994 over 850 Malts have been released under The Ultimate label and there are many more to come.
