Abbey Whisky Tasting Notes - The Journey



Nose: A lovely deep but delicate nose, peat smoke flavours, pear drops, whisky fudge, hints of vanilla, oak and light spice with a very slight sherry note.



Taste: A very smooth and well balanced dram. Coats your mouth with lovely peaty smokey flavours and hints of spice. Creamy toffee with an oily, very slight briny notes coming through, again with a touch of peat and smoke.



Finish: Good length, peat/smoke coats the mouth, when the smoke leaves, creamy dry notes, with lovely delicate spice.



Overall: A cracking dram, perfectly balanced. Really enjoyed the combination of spice, peat and smoke flavours.
