46.0% | 70cl | | NCF | Highland
Blooming Gorse is a blend of two single malt whiskies from the Highland region, matured in 15 first fill ex-Bourbon barrels and 4 first fill ex-Bourbon hogsheads . Key tasting notes: gorse flowers, coconut and vanilla. Only 6,900 bottles were produced.
COLOUR: Hay Gold
NOSE: A fresh, bright nose with vanilla and coconut notes that weave amongst the nutty and fruity spirit to evoke the aromas of freshly bloomed gorse flowers, geraniums, honey nut cereal and roasted cashew nuts.
PALATE: The initial top notes are that of rich porridge sweetened with floral honey. The mouth feel is smooth and creamy with a mild spice and tingle on the palate and the flavour of desiccated coconut.
FINISH: Medium length with lingering coconut and vanilla.
