Tasting Notes and Technical Description:
The whisky displays an inviting amber color with golden hues, indicative of its balanced maturation in both sherry and American oak casks.
The aroma opens with a refined medley of dried fruits, notably figs and sultanas, interwoven with hints of vanilla and a light smokiness. There's a backdrop of leather and cedar, ideal for cigar pairing.
Upon tasting, the palate is immediately graced with flavors of dark chocolate, toffee, and a touch of spiced orange. Mid-palate, there's an emergence of oak tannins and a whisper of peppery spice that brings complexity and depth, designed to complement a cigar's own array of flavors.
The finish is long and sophisticated, featuring lingering notes of tobacco leaf, dark fruit, and a final hint of spice. It closes with a smooth, creamy texture that leaves the palate yearning for another sip—and another draw from your cigar.
Medium to full-bodied with an oily texture, the whisky provides enough weight to stand up to a full-bodied cigar while retaining the finesse to not overpower milder varieties.
