Scotch Whisky Advent Calendar - Day Nineteen

December 19, 2016

Dec 19 - 1995 Samaroli Spey (20 year old )

Nose: Fresh and juicy - this nose shows a full basket of fresh summer berries - somewhat acidulous with raspberries & pineapple juice. There's kind of a Spring-ish vibe in this whisky that I particularly like.

Palate: The palate is still very fruity with some ripe bananas, sultanas & apricots joining the fruit salad. Also some hot & sweet spices, woody and honeyed aromas

Finish: lingering with a gentle smokiness and more wood spices

Food Pairing: raspberry trifle
