Robert from Angels’ Nectar Whisky recently sent me a sample of their new Rich Peat Edition Scotch Whisky. Created from a selection of Highland malts and bottled at a punchy 46%.
I reviewed their first offering a year ago and I was mightily impressed so I was well chuffed to be offered a chance to savour their latest offering.
The Angels’ Nectar Rich Peat Edition has been released by Highfern Ltd, a young drinks business founded by Robert Ransom and based in Grantown-on-Spey.
Commenting on the release Robert said; “Its great to see our range of malts expand. International interest in the Rich Peat Edition has also been particularly exciting.”
So, what did I think?
Here are my tasting notes …
Tasting Notes – Angels Nectar Blended Malt Scotch Whisky – Rich Peat Edition ( 46% )
Like the original Angels Nectar, the Rich Peat Edition is again, a very pale dram.
Nose: Smokey and peaty with an inviting bonfire aroma that seems to soak into your tastebuds! It develops into rich fruity sweetness and thick treacle.
Palate: Well balanced peat n’ smoke with the spicy sweetness of stewed fruit and dark chocolate.
Finish: The sweet fruit pulls it’s weight and the spicy peat goes on and on coupled with tastes of tobacco and a little tanin grapefruit.
A blended peaty malt that doesn’t fail to deliver. I love the smokey, bonfire aromas and tastes and the rich fruit and chocolate make a nice counter flavour. Highly recommended!
Many thanks to Robert and the team at Angels Nectar for sending the sample!
