Dec 11 – Kiln Embers – Wemyss Malts
Nose : I may be a bit biased here – I actually awarded this dram last year in my « whisky awards 2015 » so obviously… I really like it. The nose delivers a perfect balance between sweet aromas & rich peat smoke with hints of tangerines, maple syrup, roasted pork (yep…), burnt caramel and toasted nuts.
Palate : Its name speaks for itself – and if you already like Wemyss Peat Chimney, then trust me, you’ll be in for a treat with this one ! All the aromas present in the nose still show, in an even more intense way but this expression always remain deliciously smooth and balanced with a great complexity…. A killer !
Finish : lingering with wood spices, peat and citrusy notes.
Food Pairing : mature comté
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.
