Koval Four Grain

Door number 9 of the Drinks by the Dram American Whiskey Advent Calendar is open and a sample of Koval Four Grain, bottled at 47% is revealed!

On the nose I can find notes of redcurrant/strawberry/raspberry syrup, a soft liquorish note, grilled fennel, roasted beetroot, mashed carrots seasoned with grounded black pepper. Even a soft seaweed and leather note appear. A soft vanilla note, dried apricots, sultanas, Asian spice cake and soft fruit notes.

The palate has some beautiful spice notes mixed with creamy custard pudding dressed with a red summer fruit sauce over it. Sweet notes of tum tums, maple syrup, pieces of fudge, hint of chocolate, malt, dried fruits, red apple, dried banana and honey.

A very interesting dram with very soft finish on it. The liquorish and fruit notes are clearly present throughout the nose and palate, with a good amount of spices and malts that has a chocolate feeling in the end. Thanks #DrinksbytheDram for sharing this #WhiskeyAdvent !
