Please take into account that these are my personal tasting notes and personal experience, as such you may interpret this whisky very differently from me.
Lavender? Pine needles? Wood (oak), sweet, smoke.
Sweet yet tangy, nutty, caramel and smoky.
Medium finish, spicy, nutty and smoky.
An odd mix. I wasn’t sure if the notes I wrote down were right as each time I nosed or tasted this it seemed to change. A real mixture but perhaps more enjoyable because of it’s unpredictability?
Classic Rock Match:
Following a post by @the_whisky_lady entitled ON THE ROCKS: Match Your Whisky With Rock Classics I’m going to try and match my tastings with a classic rock song.
For this dram I’m going with Black Sabbath – Paranoid.
I feel I have to offer a brief explanation to my song choice for this one. I really struggled with working out the nose and the palate on this one and in truth it left me doubting myself and feeling a little paranoid over the whole experience, hence Paranoid
Part of my first Flaviar tasting pack.
One I definitely want to try again but only when I’m in the right mind set to handle the confusing mix of messages it kept giving me.
