Our oenologists' opinion

Well-rounded

This full-bodied whiskey has a yellow lemon color. It releases fragrances of fresh pear and dry pineapple. Floral aromas such as lilac and notes slightly smoked, close to mocha, are allying in mouth. A slightly sweet taste is brought by a touch of white fruits, that mix with mineral notes.

 

Features

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.

Do you know ?

A single malt whisky refers only to malted barley from a single distillery while a blended scotch is a blend of single malts and grain whiskies.
