Starward - Nova - Blind Tasting #20 - Flaviar Advent Calendar 2022
Flaviar Advent Calendar (2022) - The Depths of Whiskey. Whiskey #20. Product of Australia, 41% abv.
The smell is muted but I can get some red and green apples, and pears. Pretty nice. It doesn’t jump out of the glass, you have to go looking for it but what you find is nice.
The taste is spicy red fruit, baking spice, and a strong red wine grape sour element but in a good way. Black pepper, clove, menthol, and mint.
The finish is medium/long with the clove and mint really showing up and hanging around late.
This is a nice surprise in the Flaviar box. What’s even better is the taste delivered above the smell. Would be happy to have this anytime.
Overall Grade: B - (Good)
