Abducted Malt Whisky Sanchez Romate (Hiszpania) /40%/ –
Abducted Malt Whiskey is likely the first spirit produced with extraterrestrial forces. Reading the press clipping on the label tells about the kidnapping of the whiskey and its transfer to Jerez de la Frontera. Whisky theft is not that scary. Every year ruthless angels claim their share of at least 2% of aging whisky, but transporting spirit by a flying saucer has never happened before. Unfortunately, the great ones who could solve this mystery, such as Inspector Clouseau or James Bond, are gone. Thus, we have to accept the official note. The Scottish single malt found its way to Spain. It was aged there in three types of sherry casks – Oloroso, Amontillado, and Pedro Ximénez in the bodega Sánchez Romate. Only 715 bottles of this whiskey have been designated for the planet Earth.
Nose: strong sherry statement, dried figs and dates, sultanas, plums, chocolate cream, honey, hints of tobacco and sherried oak.
Palate: follows the nose, sherry, sweet dried fruits, milk chocolate, honey, orange marmalade on a toast, hints of nutmeg and pipe tobacco.
Finish: medium long, with notes of sherry, dried dark fruits, milk chocolate, dash of allspice and oak.
