Tasting Notes and Technical Description:
The whiskey exudes a sumptuous, deep amber color, with a glowing hue that reveals its complex maturation process. The consistency in the glass is full-bodied, and the legs, which elegantly streak the glass upon swirling, confirm its rich profile.
The olfactory bouquet opens with vibrant notes of orchard fruits—most notably apple and pear—followed by subtler nuances of vanilla, cinnamon, and a hint of caramel. The interplay between the spicy rye and the sweeter bourbon components results in a nose that is both intricate and harmonious.
The initial palate is greeted by a robust sweetness, manifested as notes of toffee and honey, derived from the bourbon's influence. This sweetness is quickly balanced by the spicier elements of rye, bringing forward flavors of cracked pepper and a touch of clove. The palate is further enriched by undertones of toasted oak and a smidgen of leather, culminating in a tasting experience that is complex yet seamlessly integrated.
The finish is long and fulfilling, with a lingering warmth that emphasizes its rye components. Hints of tobacco and dark chocolate subtly appear, offering a sophisticated ending to an otherwise multifaceted tasting profile.
Smooth yet vibrant, Lost Monarch's mouthfeel underscores its blended nature. The velvety texture from the bourbon elements is complemented by the spicy zing from the rye, resulting in a balanced and fulfilling sip.
