Blend, Scotland / Speyside, 70cl, Ref: 19839
For a long time, Fabio Rossi, founder of the Italian company Wilson & Morgan, dreamt of creating a very old blended scotch that would revive an era in our taste memory when blended scotch ruled the world. To realise his dream, he carried out a mammoth and rigorous task of cask selection. In order to achieve the most perfect harmony possible, the venerable grain and malt whiskies that make up this Home Blend where then blended and aged for a number of months in a sherry cask.

- Appearance : orangey copper
- Nose : fine, delicate. The initial nose alternates between Vosges boiled sweets and wild flower honey. It then develops into dried (date, fig, apricot) and exotic fruit (passion fruit, mango). This slightly unusual fruity combination is quite simply exhilarating. It then becomes gradually more influenced by vanilla and caramel. Notes of chestnut, sweet chestnut and oranges arrive in a grand finale.
- Palate : powerful, firm. The palate is very different from the nose, expressing particularly vibrant, spicy notes (clove, cinnamon). Warm and cereal-like, the mid-palate is grainy, still full of spice (pepper) and heat (Cayenne pepper). This increase in power results in the appearance of floral (lily, peony) and infused (tea, coffee) notes.
- Overall : tender and yet firm. Cocoa powder and grated ginger spread across the taste buds. The superb quality of the plump, chocolatey tannins exalt the finish. The retro-nasal olfaction is floral (hyacinth, carnation) and jammy (Mirabelle plum, greengage). The empty glass is powdery and abounds with dried fruit (almond, walnut, prune) and sweet spices (cardamom, cinnamon)
