A whisky from the Copper Rivet Distillery in England. The whisky is made using a mix of barley, wheat, and rye grains, with a long fermentation to enhance the flavour, and is distilled in a combination of pot and column stills in the Kent town of Chatham, before finally being matured exclusively in ex-bourbon casks
On the Nose
This dram has a really inviting nose. I got some lightly toasted almonds, maybe sprinkled over a freshly baked cinnamon pastry. If you are a fan of hobnob biscuits, you'll like the smell of this dram!
On the palate
This tastes like creamy Scottish shortbread, with a sprinkling of cinnamon. A very subtle minty dark chocolate vibe, with a very slight sweetness you'd expect from a bar of dark chocolate. Some fresh green apples lingered as the main finishing note.
A great dram. I really enjoyed sitting and savouring this, one sip at a time. There was plenty of flavour for this dram to hold up on its own. I imagine this would also be great in an Old Fashioned, as the flavours aren't a million miles away from Bourbon (maybe a controversial statement, I'm not sure...)
