Dec 7 – Samaroli – 2008 Allt A Bhainne (7yo)
Nose : light and spiritely with plums, cardamom, a touch of anise (fennel ?). Quite a malty and slightly floral profile as well with a suprising hint of milk chocolate in the very background. Just enough to get me intrigued and willing to know what the palate will deliver :D
Palate : fairly easy-drinking and light with more floral notes, wood spices, custard cream biscuits. A dram I would classify in the « everyday dram » category : interesting enough but no too complex, just what you need after a long day at work !
Finish : elegant and heartwarming
Recommended Food Pairing : shortbreads
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.
