If you want a bit of autumn flavour in your Saturday, then our #COTD , a Whiskey Rose is a perfect choice. With #Rye , Rosemary #SimpleSyrup , #LemonJuice & Sparkling #AppleCider , this is a lovely sweet apple and smoky whiskey blend.
The second release from the Glenfiddich Experimental Series is Project XX. This is where 20 brand ambassadors for Glenfiddich from all over the world each chose a barrel from the stock at the distillery. Brian Kinsman from Glenfiddich then blended them together to create this single malt Scotch. It's elegant packaging and bottled at 94 proof.
The color is honeyed and the Scotch itself has a syrupy looking texture.
A nose of milk chocolate, rich malted barley, honey, sautéed chanterelles, almond, British honeycomb candy bar and vanilla.
There is just a slight alcohol burn at first on the palate. It has a rich mouthfeel, light to medium peat smoke (getting more apparent as it sits), cigar ash, nutty, toasty, honey, grain porridge and mushroom.
The finish is long, with more smoke, milk chocolate, orange zest and clove.
This is an interesting and very well balanced bottle. There are some richer flavors like fudge, honey and nuts. Overall it has plenty of deep Scotch character without being overly savory or thin and alcoholic. I haven't tried their IPA release, but had heard good things. I would suggest giving this one a try if you have the chance.
Cheers to the weekend!

Time to kick off the weekend with some #FamilyFriday This week, we want to recognize @michterswhiskey and the incredible lineup they have to offer. Ranging from American Whiskey, to Barrel Strength Rye, and finishing at a 20 year Bourbon, they really cover it all. The barrels are dried anywhere from 18-36 months, the juice enters the barrels at a lower proof, 103 to be exact, so that the concentrated sugars dissolved more readily. As it ages, they heat cycle the barrels, allowing for more "cycles" to happen in a given year. This process increases the Angels Share, but enhances the quality of the whiskey, Cheers!
