Dec 6 – Anneamh – Highlands 18yo (57%)
Nose : Rich, fruity and almost syrupy with cooked peaches, red berries (raspberry jam ?), vanilla, mahogany wood, sweet spices and yummy ginger bread cookies :p
Palate : Thick and well-balanced – a gentle smokiness comes through without overpowering the fruity and more subtle aromas. Also some woody, spicy and sugary notes – slightly bitter towards the end.
Finish : lingering with dried notes and more wood spices.
Recommended Food Pairing : Black forest cake
From December -Anne-Sophie will open her Advent Calendar, 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.
