Monde Crystal Blended Whisky
Review by Nonjatta contributor - Dramtastic:
Monde Crystal whisky. 40 per cent alcohol.
Nose: Pear, apples, honey and a surprising amount of smoke. Hints of glue, woodstain and diesel.
Palate: Smokey, chocolatey, malty. Honey and pear.
Finish: More smoke, sweet lemon, chocolate, malt and some mineral-like qualities. Finishes with ashy dryness on the palate and warms the chest nicely.
General Comment: Whisky making is a small part of this distillery's concerns. That they have managed to come up with a smooth, balanced and fairly complex whisky that tastes far more like a single malt than a blend amazes me.
