Our oenologists' opinion
This Lowlands single malt is made from the assembly of bourbon and sherry barrels. This characteristic explains its nice and fresh nose of fennel, fresh pear and vanilla. It also explains its good balance and its length, powerful and full-bodied, highlighting a mineral side and a touch of fresh anise.
- Keeping level Ready to drink
Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.
Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.
Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.
Tannins ? Coming from stems, grape pips and their storage barrels, the tannin gives structure to red wines only.
