Fourteen-year-old Islay scotch whisky imbued with notes of oak tannins, peat, almond, and vanilla. Give this one a minute and a gentle chew to release the flavors seated deep in the wood.
Whether it’s Single Malt or Bourbon there is one thing to know about whiskey. The dominant tasting note for both these spirits comes from the oak barrels they are aged in. If at first glance, our toothpicks taste a lot like wood don’t be surprised - that’s the oak of the barrel leading the charge.
If you give it a minute and a gentle bite, the essence of the spirit - the botanicals, extracts, and phenols - will start to release from deep inside the birch rewarding you with the more delicate and delicious tasting notes.
