Iwai

WP_20160303_005Color: Deep amber with slight reddish hue. When tilted in glass, a clear halo adorns the perimeter.

Nose: Caramel and honey with hints of orange peel and purple plumb.

Taste: The ol’ caramel standby is present but highlighted by a woody sweetness purportedly imparted by 12 years of aging in wine barrels. The finish left me with the very faint essence of anise.

Incredibly smooth and accessible with a slight rasp and smokiness on the back end, this malt/grain blend is a silky pleasure from first sip to last drop.

Distillery: Mars Whisky
