First an apology for being so elusive.
I’m always flat out in Feb with my teaching and then trying to organise wine stuff as vintage happens.
Anyway I finally broached the Heartwood on Wednesday night and it’s very impressive!
Neat. Good fresh spirit on the first nose with sweet lifted orange peel aromas and a little burnt sugar.
The palate is more coffee sugar and a warm very long finish.
With water it opens up and the “Terry’s chocolate orange” flavour is more intense.
There is a great length to it and a slight toffee like finish. Beautiful balance for such a young whisky, a real “hearts” sweetness and freshness to it..
Well done! What’s the sell price do you think?
