A rich and delicate nose evokes the malt, walnuts and some musty smells, a dusty cellar, but the whole perfectly balanced. In the palate, malt at the time spicy and creamy, with clear woody hints which do not overrule the spicy notes however, and developing to chocolate touches. A nice finish, bitter and lingering, where the wood and the chocolate from the palate are still very present.
Single malt Scotch: a delight usually refrained from until after dinner. Most popular pairing: the cigar
About the Varietal:
Single malt whisky is a whisky which is distilled at a single distillery, and which is made completely from a single type of malted grain, traditionally barley, (although there are also single malt rye whiskies). Most single malt whiskies are distilled using a pot still. Single malts are produced all over the world, but the best known single malts come from Scotland, Ireland and Japan.
