Tasting Notes
Keith Wood Glass: Classic Malt – Colour: Light oak – Nose: Very aromatic and floral, in fact massively complex flora here. Also lightly herbal to the point where I have to suggest “English country garden meets Alpine Meadow”. Eventually a light farminess develops also in a very aromatic way. – Palate: White pepper and distinct white wine, then oats and (morning coffee) biscuit. With more time in the glass a delightful fruitiness develops, but this is always in the direction of grapes and that Sauternes. – Finish: Long, very big, fruity and even a slight suggestion of smokiness. – Overall Impression: Excellent, I love it even with that white wine, or maybe because of the wine?
