Expert Tasting Notes and Technical Description:
Introducing New Holland Zeppelin Bend Single Malt Whiskey, an exemplary piece of American craftsmanship, meticulously curated for the shelves of Third Base Market & Spirits. This 3-year-old single malt, distilled and matured in Holland, Michigan, showcases a breathtaking finesse and complexity not often found in such young American spirits. With its moderate ABV of 45%, Zeppelin Bend balances power and elegance, making it a delightful journey for the senses.
On the first olfactory encounter, you'll be greeted by a subtle interplay of caramel and vanilla notes, indicating its time spent in new American oak barrels. Lighter hints of green apple and pear also make an appearance, along with a trace of almond, giving it a nutty complexity that elevates the bouquet.
Upon the first sip, Zeppelin Bend opens up a pantheon of flavors that dance across the palate. The immediate warmth from the alcohol harmonizes with the richness of caramel and vanilla, while underlying notes of dark chocolate and roasted coffee beans add depth and dimension. But what sets this whiskey apart is the appearance of unexpected floral notes—reminiscent of lavender and rose—that add a layer of aromatic complexity.
The finish is graceful and lingering, allowing for a sweet fade-out of its core flavors. Yet, as it dissipates, it leaves behind a slightly spicy imprint, suggesting hints of cinnamon and nutmeg, making for a robust yet intricate conclusion.
Given its multifaceted nature, Zeppelin Bend offers a range of pairing options. Its caramel and vanilla flavors would make it a delightful companion to apple pie or crème brûlée. Alternatively, it can be equally satisfying as an after-dinner sipper, perhaps accompanied by a small square of dark chocolate.
