Nantou Taiwanese Single Malt Omar Sherry Cask Whisky 70cl
Nose: Crisp, clear, fruity, and sweet on the nose. Sweet sherry, caramel, butter, custard apple (or sugar apple), pineapple, anise, fresh grass, apple cider, and dessert pastries. Inviting.
Palate: Medium bodied, but slightly oily. A calm, semi-bitter arrival keeps the sweetness in check. Apples, anise, nutmeg, cinnamon, pineapple, lemon, caramel, butter, grass, and custard apple.
Finish: Subsides rather quickly, and the lingering notes bring some tropical sweetness forward. Banana, nuts, cream, apple cider, pineapple, cinnamon, nutmeg, grass, and anise. The notes here arenÍt nearly as clear as they were on the nose.
