Tasting Notes and Technical Description:
The whiskey presents itself with a warm, golden-amber hue reminiscent of cozy winter evenings. It has a medium body, displaying slow legs when swirled in the glass.
The initial aromas that greet you are a vibrant blend of cinnamon, clove, and nutmeg, beautifully underscored by the warm and inviting scent of vanilla and oak. Hints of orange peel add a subtle citrusy freshness to the bouquet.
Upon the first sip, a harmonious balance of winter spices envelops your taste buds. The spiciness of cinnamon and nutmeg is expertly tamed by the sweetness of brown sugar and vanilla. Mid-palate, you will notice hints of dried fruit, such as raisins and figs, adding complexity and depth. Despite its spice-forward profile, the whiskey maintains a smooth and easy-to-sip character.
The finish is moderately long, characterized by lingering notes of spiced apple and a touch of caramel sweetness. The gentle warmth of the alcohol creates a comforting and fulfilling finish, perfect for cold winter nights.
The whiskey exhibits a medium-bodied texture with a slight viscosity, offering a plush and round mouthfeel that complements its spicy profile.
