Single Cask 591 Abbey Whisky Exclusive
No age statement
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Cinder toffee and milk chocolate. Fruits of the forest, baked aubergine and peppermint. With time, chocolate brownie, Camp Coffee (chicory) and black pepper. Miso, sesame oil, and background sage.
Palate: Medium-full bodied. Salted caramel and milk chocolate. The nose follows to the palate. Stewed plums with cinnamon, nutmeg, clove and pepper. Delicate mushroom and nougat notes build with time. Subtly herbal.
Finish: Long, on caramel and nougat.
Comment: Rich and digestif-like. It would be a perfect after-dinner dram.
Nose: Cinnamon flapjacks with golden syrup. Coffee with condensed milk. Toffee shortbread. A touch of sweet bonfire smoke, like hickory wood. Black pepper and sweet-smoky paprika.
Palate: Medium-full bodied. Butterscotch chunks and ginger-biscuit cheesecake base. Fresh red apple and blackcurrants. Herbal tarragon and toasted sourdough. Just a whisper of that smoke.
Finish: Medium-long, on blackcurrants, crisp pie crust and candied ginger.
Comment: Indulgent and brazen – ideal to share round after a barbeque.
