Angels’ Nectar – Blended Malt Scotch Whisky – 40% abv
Info: Created from a selection of Speyside and Highland malt whiskies (i.e. there’s no grain whisky in the blend) by Robert Ransom, formerly of Glenfarclas. No colouring added.
Colour: Clear with a hint of yellow, nice and honest.
Nose: Beautifully gentle buttery speyside nose, with a malty, gentle nutty background.
Palate: Fairly thick mouthfeel, especially considering it’s 40%. It’s got a well rounded balance of sweetness, a drop of oak and a hint of spice, along with some stewed fruits and lots of buttery creaminess.
Finish: A longer and more warming finish than expected. It’s fairly creamy sweet with just a hint of tannins.
Water: None needed.
Thoughts: A well put together blended malt, a good early evening dram that won’t break your wallet.
Available: Master of Malt – £30.95
