A blue-painted warrior blended malt if ever there was one...

34
Braveheart Blue Blended Malt +- 55%
An astonishing nose! You would be forgiven for thinking that this was an aged single malt.
Toffee, stewed prunes, smoked barley, orange marmalade, liquorice, sherried vanilla and peppery spice.
On the palate there is sweet sherry, peat and pepper and a dry cabernet finish with a lingering toasted Spanish oak.
Water opens the toffees and vanillas, sweetens up the sherry, then cake spice appears, seville marmalade and more Islay peat.
Interestingly the peppery finish on the tongue is now intensely sea-driven, salty and then charred sherry wood that doesn't let go. 92
Not much left of this magic and very rare dram so I suggest a visit to Dullstroom and the Wild About Whisky bar as soon as possible!!
