Label 5 Whisky
Blended Scotch Whisky, 18 Years Old
Label 5 18 year old is a blend of malt and grain Scotch whiskies which have matured in oak casks for more than 18 years. In a just a petite snivel, the nose presents itself with dry Spanish cedar, vanilla, dark chocolate, roast pumpkin, poppy seeds, honeycomb and creamy floral undertones. On the palate the whisky is very smooth, with the an immediate woody taste transforming magically into earthy hazelnuts, pumpkin seeds, vanilla, pumpkin baklava touched with mild fruit in a smoky haze. At mid-palate the sweetness begins to fade, as it is slowly replaced by heavier wood notes and tannins. The finish continues with this woody theme, offering lingering dark chocolate cherry liqueur and toasted coconut leaving the tip of the tongue slightly dry but curiously a creamy film remains on the center of the tongue.
