Angels’s Nectar Rich Peat Edition Blended Malt Whisky

$148.00

Description

‘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.

ABV
46%

PRODUCTION TYPE
Blended malt whisky

FLAVOUR CAMP
Smoky & Peaty

NOSE
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.

PALATE
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.

FINISH
Hazelnut and a slight pepperiness to the smoke.

CONCLUSION
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.
