Tasting Notes and Technical Description:
The spirit dons a rich amber hue, speaking to its time spent in charred oak barrels. The glass holds thick, lingering legs when swirled, suggesting a full-bodied character.
The nose presents a balanced medley of subtle grain notes, particularly of barley, paired with fragrant honey. There's a slight floral undertone, accented by nuances of caramel and toasted almonds, making the aroma inviting yet elegantly complex.
On the palate, it's immediately evident that barley is the star of the show, providing a wholesome, cereal-like base. This is complemented by a silky wave of vanilla and butterscotch, adding sweetness but not overpowering the grain's natural flavors. A wisp of spiced pear and apple contributes a subtle fruitiness.
The finish is remarkably smooth and enduring, with the rich flavors of barley and sweet undertones gently fading into a lingering warmth that invites another sip.
Despite its complexity, the whisky boasts a smooth, almost creamy mouthfeel that adds a level of luxuriousness to the overall tasting experience.
