The Epicurean Blended Malt

Blended Malt — Lowlands, Scotland

4.25 out of 5 stars
Nose: Dill flavor hits the nose initially with a buttery fragrance, delicate floral and grassy notes. Some lemon zest appears with green apple and a mild spearmint note at the back. Addition of water brings out a rich chocolate note and making th sugar much more apparent. Palate: Cinnamon appears much more prominently with strong grassy notes, fennel, pears and apples. The spiciness lingers throughout giving way to a creamier flavor, vanilla and soft herbs, almost like a mint tea. Adding water opens up fruitier notes of green grapes and slight hints of banana with milk chocolate Finish: A long-lasting combination of lemongrass, fennel and subtle oak.
