Oloroso, Single Malt Whisky
No age statement
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Huge sweetness up front, like opening a tin of tropical fruit salad, peaches in sugar syrup with cream. A little latte spiced with cinnamon and dark chocolate.
Palate: Still wonderfully sweet, with golden syrup notes and chargrilled peaches. Roasted brisket with jerk seasoning and black treacle glaze, a little charcoal burn and sweet warming spices.
Finish: Gently drying with those spices leaving a warming edge.
Comment: Nicely put together and the aging has been well handled, all in balance and perfect harmony.
Nose: Fruity and oily, with notes of fresh pineapple, cream soda, sandalwood and blackcurrant leaf.
Palate: Like sucking on blackcurrant and liquorice sweets. There’s a huge oak influence with lovely wood spice – black pepper, nutmeg and cinnamon. Then sweetness from dark, chewy toffee and a herbal lift of spearmint.
Finish: Dry but with a pleasantly lasting blend of blackcurrant, liquorice and mint.
Comment: Beautifully balanced. A great example of how exquisite Indian malts can be.
