Peated Highland Malt 13 Year Old Tasting Notes
Official tasting notes
Nose: Ripe plums, red wine, sticky caramel and a hint of smoke. Imagine eating bowl of pudding in front of the fire.
Palate: Blast of sherry sweetness mingles with the mild smoke. A creamy and buttery whisky with flavours of red fruits, Christmas cake, alongside nutmeg spice and maybe even a hint of citrus.
Finish: Smoke and spice mingle deeply on the palate and are the last to go. The fruit is full bodied and creamily melts away.
Colour: Natural colour, medium copper. Thickly coats the glass with tears that develop slowly.
Nose: Rich red berries and forest fruits. Dark, moist malt loaf. A certain earthiness, and the faintest suggestion of peat smoke.
Palate: Medium to full mouthfeel. Caramel meets berries. Dense sticky Christmas pudding packed with fruit and orange peel, doused in dark sherry. Gentle smoke, as if from the kitchen fire. Alcohol is well integrated.
Finish: Medium to long finish. Red apples, berries, and a touch of wood spice fading into gentle smoke.
Overall: A really lovely whisky that balances quality spirit, with peat smoke and sherry maturation to create a balanced yet complex dram.
About Uncharted's The Second Coming
If you were lucky enough to try Uncharted's recent bottling “Smokestack Lightning”, wait until you try The Second Coming. The same peated Highland spirit, from the same original casks, transferred to soak in a rich oloroso sherry quarter cask for 6 months.
Now the billowing smoke has softened to a sweeter and rounder liquid which eludes everything we love about first fill sherry casks and a delicacy of Highland smoke. Sticky Toffee pudding, dates, red wine, ripe plums… what’s not to love?
The single quarter cask has yielded just 155 bottles at cask strength, aged 13 years. Named for the classic Britpop album - not the biblical prophecy on this occasion - this is the second visit to Uncharted's shelves of this full bodied spirit but it won’t be the last...
