‘Angels’ Nectar takes the much loved story of the Angels’ share from whisky folklore and presents it in a contemporary and intuitive fashion
As the name suggests this is heavily peated. Bottled at 46%, this whisky oozes peat smoke like the welcoming smoke from the chimney of an old farmhouse in the Highlands. This is followed by a subtle fruity sweetness akin to toffee apples and dark chocolate. The peat is smoky rather than medicinal.
Blended malt whisky
Smoky & Peaty
Gold. Sweet and smoky, mixing peat and woodsmoke. There’s good richness which is balanced by soft sweet elements. A little more airy with water.
Gentle to start with an unctuous, tongue-coating texture that moves between bread and butter pudding, and light cocoa. The smoke now resembles a burning moor along with heather blossom, and a slight earthiness. It never loses its chewiness or sweet core.
Hazelnut and a slight pepperiness to the smoke.
A vatting of peaty Highland malts which delivers excellently. Very well balanced. Recommended.
RIGHT PLACE, RIGHT TIME
Low light through the trees, the hillside smouldering with the prospect of a warm fire.
