Tasting Notes

This stunning single malt was created specially for members of The Scotch Malt Whisky Society by our friends at Dunville's Irish Whiskey. Needless to say, our Tasting Panel were bowled over by the quality & complexity on display. Pour a glass and lose yourself in silky opulence.

We dipped candied oranges into a chocolate sauce at the same time as baking French blueberry fig tarts and preparing a plum and pear compote with honey. A silly, silky-smooth texture on the palate reminded one Panellist of a honey lavender earl grey latte, while another had a tropical smoothie blending mango, pineapple, banana and coconut milk. Following reduction, we discovered crème Catalan flavoured with citrus peel and cinnamon as well as barbecued mango with macadamia nuts and honey. The taste left us all speechless, truly a knockout! – chocolate ganache, stirred until smooth, silky and shiny, topping cream-filled chocolate cupcakes.
