Tasting Note from "La Maison Du Whisky"
Color: topaz with orange highlights.
Nose: rich, complex. Blend of vanilla, very ripe banana, passion fruit, mango and curry, the first nose is simply sublime. With a remarkable maturity and freshness, it evolves with aeration on notes of honey and beeswax. Further on, it transports us into a bucolic setting to pick apples and pears both crisp and juicy. Even further, in addition to exotic fruits, fresh tobacco and pine resin perfumes permeate oranges and mandarins. Palate: both juicy and greedy. In attack of mouth, the same exotic fruits spread their acidulated juice on the walls of the palate. Then, at this precise moment, she takes us to Ireland at full speed. In the middle of the mouth, red and black fruits (raspberry, blueberry) and apricot peaches reinforce this taste similarity a little more. Finely wooded and roasted, the divinely malty finish comes back to lightning speed at Fort William. For the second time, beeswax surrounds the taste buds while notes of incense give it a lot of spirituality. Final: long, concentrated. Mangoes, pineapples, gooseberries and queen-claudes gracefully diffuse their liquorice nuances. The touch of mouth is of a sensuality on the edge of skin and extends to infinity these moments of pure pleasure. The retro-olfaction reveals many autumn fruits (nuts, chestnut, chestnut, hazelnut). Empty glass is filled with scents of coconut, rice pudding, mirabelle plum and candied ginger. Beautiful . Tasting Notes
