Kingsbarns Balcomie Whisky
Here we have Balcomie, a sherried release from Kingsbarns distilled with locally-grown Fife barley. It was matured exclusively in American oak butts that previously held Oloroso sherry, which is rather unusual seeing as sherry is usually held in European oak. Richer, spicy notes from the sherry balance the sweeter, tropical notes from the oak. Top stuff from the Lowland distillery!
Nose: Cinnamon scrolls and hot cross buns, with a drizzle of maple syrup and dried cherry.
Palate: Pineapple upside down cake, marmalade and more cinnamon, with a touch of cocoa.
Finish: Apricot jam and chocolate-coated nuts.
