Slow fringing teardrops/legs. Very satisfying coherent movement of liquid in glass when swirled around.
Cold slices of roast mutton. Raspberries. Pears. Sultanas.
AMAZING! Mouthfeel is SO heavy and malleable. Liquid moves like heavy, old, high quality satin.
Absolute buzzing on front of gums – like they are about to sneeze!
Coiled tarry ropes. Fresh white peaked icing on a Christmas cake.
Lovely linger into the chest. Takes a while for this to arrive. Timing is amazing – mouthfeel diminishes, then you feel the sensations in your chest.
Adrid Peat and honeycomb. Amazing balancing sourness at the back of the mouth from the oiliness.
This is a fantastic dram. I forgot how good it is.
We have each whisky paired with a specific Tango song and dance. People can either watch or join in the Tango after hearing a bit about the dram and why it is chosen to pair with the dance/song.
There is a dance after called a Milonga. – Milonga is a style of dancing – more cheeky and flowing than Tango itself, which is intense and sentimental and very much controlled sensuality.
SCOTCH & TREE TASTING
Trees are like whiskies and like people. Trees have different characters, shapes, voices, and behaviours.
Trees like hanging out in certain groups, there are types of trees with whom they are friends. Some trees are sociable, some trees – mostly female trees – are pioneers!
Thinking about Trees and whisky in this way allows us to match the character of certain excellent whiskies to the characters of certain trees.
As we learn more about each whisky, we learn more about each tree.
