Dram Review: No Age Declared Cuvée 2016 43%

[43.0%・NAS・Bottled in 2016・Silvano Samaroli Bottling Bottling]


Subtle Sherry influence conveying a certain cleanness.  Lovely orchard fruits providing the wholesome jammy note, lemons and wild flowers wrapped in tender coal smoke.

Palate & Finish:

Softness illustrated with the plump fruits, delightful indeed with just a fine brush of waxiness as some tannins join in.

Well finished with traces of chocolate as the coffee infused malt surfaces.


Despite my failing to be enlightened by this particular curation it is clearly a pleasant dram, a harmonious blend; perhaps this is a throw back to the old days when simplicity wasn’t frowned upon but instead embraced.
