DRY FLY 4 years old Triticale French Oak Finish - 60th anniversary LMDW 60%
Autres Whisky, United States / Washington, 70cl, Ref: 52056
Triticale is a hybrid grain obtained by cross-breeding wheat and rye. Created at the end of the 19th century, it was brought back into fashion in 2007 by the Dry Fly distillery near Spokane, in the heart of Washington State. This cask-strength version finished in a Cognac barrel requires time to fully appreciate all the riches of its abundant aromas and flavours. The finish - a veritable maelstrom of flavours - is one of the real treats of this tasting.
Profile: the nose is striking, with a somewhat wild character. As it breathes, it becomes herbaceous, fruity, spicy (black pepper) and chocolatey. More creamy, the palate is very cereal-like before becoming fruity (apricot, grape) and vanilla flavoured. The finish brings notes of red fruits and beeswax.

- Appearance : orangey copper.
- Nose : lively, almost bellowing, the initial nose begs to be tamed. Which makes sense when you consider its high strength! Once these pleasantries are over, it reveals itself to be slender, herbaceous, fruity (orange) and spicy (black pepper). Allowed to breathe, its confidence remains de rigueur, it simply becomes more refined. Liquorice and dark chocolate even give it a certain smoothness.
- Palate : lively yet more unctuous than the nose implies. Hot (Cayenne pepper, paprika) and initially grain-inspired. Generous, its fruitiness intensifies (white grape, apricot), whilst its perfectly integrated wood provides the bitterness needed for its structure. At the very end of the palate, bourbon vanilla and some spice (turmeric, ginger) transcend these energetic flavours.
- Overall : long, creamy. Pepper, aromatic plants (chervil, oregano), cashew nuts, green liquorice, red fruits (raspberry, red currant), beeswax and more... all of these notes blend together wonderfully without ever fading away. The retro-nasal olfaction is divinely chocolatey and the empty glass dominated by minerality and firmness.
