Oh Canada! Yes please, and send more. What a stunner!
Alumni Whisky Series, 10 Years Old
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Seems gentle at first, then a peppery spiced edge starts to open up. Cumin, honey, and chilli roast peanuts. Cookie dough ice cream with dark chocolate sauce. Candied orange slices with a little spice.
Palate: Those spices keep going and start to kick in hard with a punch of rye pep and then cracked black pepper. A lush spicy mix of blackberry jam on dark rye bread.
Finish: That rye spice crackles and starts to dry, leaving some seriously dark chocolate.
Comment: Oh Canada! Yes please, and send more. What a stunner!
Nose: Light and delicately perfumed with rose petal, acacia honey, green apple skin, toasted almonds and Sugar Puffs.
Palate: Fruity and creamy with a floral delicacy. Sugar-dusted fruit peel, orchard blossoms, fresh orange juice and sweet flaky pastry with a touch of cinnamon spice.
Finish: Orangey, with warming baking spices and a delicate, floral sweetness too.
Comment: A beautifully blended whisky with incredible balance and poise to it.
