Please bear with me for the first number of entries, they were my first explorations into trying to define whisky experiences and do not fully represent my tasting because I didn’t have the vocabulary to describe it yet.
Type-Single Malt Scotch Whisky, 12 year old, 40% ABV
Appearance-Chardonnay to Sunlight, slow thin tears and no visible impurities.
Aroma-a sweet fruity aroma with a slight nose prickle. Yes, there is a lot more to this whisky, but at the time I didn’t know how to describe it, I will be revisiting this again.
Taste-smooth, pleasantly oily, hints of citrus, sweet, some wood and hints of grapes and raisins.
With Water-at the time I had trouble understanding the difference, but I did note some of the flavors were softened while others were able to shine through.
Finish-slightly drying, medium finish, warming a bit, very smooth.
Verdict-Again-this was and continues to be a good whisky, it will always have a special place in my heart being the first whisky I attempted to describe.
