Dec 23 - Samaroli Peaty (1995) 20yo
Nose: lightly grassy with also aromas of buttery vanilla, dried fruits, baked apples - the earthy tones are very discreet on the nose, way more than I expected!
Palate: the peatiness now appears, but still in a very gentle way. The palate is fruity and balanced with plenty of orchard fruits, nuts, toffee bonbons, wood spices, mocachino & a hint of cold tobacco
Finish: medium to long with toasted walnuts & raw coffee grounds
Food Pairing: Tiramisu
From December - Anne-Sophie aka The Whisky Lady will open her Advent Calendar from Angel's Share Glass, taste her dram and then publish her tasting notes and thoughts on each of the whiskies on the Angels’ Share Glass blog.
She’ll also be posting photos on Instagram - www.instagram.com/thewhiskylady - for those who want to take a closer look at the surprise dram every morning.
There are 25 miniatures for Anne-Sophie to taste - each one from independent bottlers and many at cask strength – with an extra special whisky for Christmas Day.
