Belgrove Rye aged in ex Heartwood “Any Port In A Storm” cask.
Colour – bright straw
The sweet aromas of candied almonds, nougat and fresh croissant take centre stage, with highlights of bush honey, blood oranges, lemonade, cola and black cherry, with vibrant grassy rye weaving throughout, an earthy hint of the first drops of rain hitting the dust lingers in the background.
On the palate, the whisky is soft, smooth and centred around candied orange peel, ripe pears and toffee apple, all surrounded in light maple syrup mixed with sweet malty smoke. The smoke carries through to the finish and the fruit and maple characters evolve into an almond croissant dusted in icing sugar.
