Rating: ★★★★

Recommendation: Buy it

Type: Single malt whisky

Origin: Speyside, Scotland

ABV: 43%

Reaction: 🙂

Nose:

Vanilla, milk chocolate, fruit mice pie, matches and warm fabric taken out of the drier.

Taste:

There is a surge of apple with wave after wave of milk chocolate softening the whack of peat, which then quickly softens and accompanies a slight herbal menthol and licorice note. Towards the finish, this malt reminds me of a white Russian with a splash of grenadine. The sherry notes, while there, resemble more of a sweet red raspberry candy or grenadine.

Finish:

The finish is creamy, with stewed red berries and lingering cocoa notes. Big malt notes become noticeable, with sweet barley sugar and spicy ginger bread.

Bottom line:

Buy it – this is a very drinkable Speysider with cream, mild peat, malt, mild herbal notes and a hint of sherry. This malt becomes very luscious and creamy, with so much milk chocolate you’ll start to wonder whether you are drinking a whisky spiked Big M chocolate milk. Now I feel like watching The Big Lebowski… with a bottle of this malt in hand; it won’t last very long.
