12 Years Old and Parmigiano - Reggiano
The colour of sharp honey, on the nose heathery floral notes are balanced with the richness of poached pears and the sweetness of malted barley.
Crème brûlée and sweet ripe banana at first, then comes a light oakiness with pear fruitiness, leading to a long smooth, creamy and fragrant finish.
What is Parmigiano - Reggiano
Also known in as Parmesan, is a hard, granular cheese, named after the producing areas near Parma, Reggio Emilia, Modena and Bologna. It is made from raw cow's milk.
The first thing you notice about a long aged Parmigiano is the texture – small tyrosine crystals, giving you the crunch in the mouth. The whisky is the complete opposite, providing a unique contrast. The 12 year old initially binds the dryness of the cheese, whilst the cheese provides a platform for the sweet fruitiness of the malt and enhances the clean barley notes. The cheese continues to glitter under the surface of the malt, offering jabs of refreshing saltiness to the finish.
