Comments

This blend of about 80% malt and 20% grain has a more substantial mouth feel than I assumed it would. It opened fully around 10 minutes, but it didn't do much after that. After enough time, about 30 minutes in the glass, the flavor profile actually started to diminish.

N- Closed. Earthy nature with whiff of smokes, charred oak. Breeze of eucalyptus. Chocolate and ripe fruits emerge after extensive breathing time.

P- Gentle, rich on texture. Sugared tea, chocolate milk. Pleasant, but drop on 2nd layer of flavours, lost on pace after a good start.

F- Short, mix spice, cinnamon. Dry and clean mouthfeel.

— at The Whisky Bar, Kuala Lumpur.
