The aromatic profile of Orchard House is a veritable bouquet of fruit and floral notes. Initially, you are greeted with wafts of ripe apple and pear, a nod to its namesake. Beneath this fruity layer, subtle traces of honeysuckle and lavender come forth, backed by a soft undercurrent of toasted oak and vanilla.
Upon the first sip, the complexity of this blend immediately makes itself known. Orchard fruits continue their presence, transitioning from the nose to the palate with a delightful burst of apple, peach, and a dash of citrus. The grain whiskies contribute a light, honeyed sweetness that superbly balances the rich, creamy texture of the malts. As you delve further, you'll uncover wisps of almond and a delicate spice—cinnamon and clove, lightly dancing in the background.
The finish is medium-long, imbued with a refined elegance. A gentle warmth settles, allowing flavors of honey and spiced fruit to linger, ultimately culminating in a final note of oak-tinged vanilla.
Orchard House's nuanced complexity lends itself to a variety of food pairings. Consider enjoying it alongside rich cheeses, charcuterie, or even a spiced apple tart.
