What I say
Sampled during the #ItsDramTime #HomeofDewars Tweet tasting held on 9th May 2018.
Paired with Guatemala 70% Plain Chocolate
- Appearance: Full amber gold (10/20), slow medium-fine tears leave fine legs
- Nose: Toffee apple, a touch of sherry leather and fruit, polished highland toffee, cereals, malt, fresh apple, pear and lemon, vanilla custard or fudge
- Taste: Spiced raisin and toffee, creamy, vanilla, lemon, lime and grapefruit, sweet cereals, honey and oat flapjacks, lemon barley sugars
- Finish: Medium, sweet, honey, gentle spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, orange peel
Well constructed blend with plenty going on, with the chocolate pairing the spicy notes were accentuated and added to the finish.
