Highfern has added a heavily-peated expression to its Angels' Nectar blended Scotch brand.
The whisky is a blend of Highland malts. It is described by the company as being "more robust" than the first edition of Angels' Nectar.
Grantown-on-Spey based Highfern Ltd, have released a new heavily peated edition of Angels' Nectar, their Angels' share inspired whisky.
As the name suggests the Rich Peat Edition of Angels' Nectar Blended Malt Scotch Whisky is heavily peated, and is described as oozing peat smoke, like the welcoming smoke from the chimney of an old bothy, after a long day on the hill. The smoke is followed by a subtle fruity sweetness akin to toffee apples and dark chocolate.
Created from a selection of Highland malts, the Rich Peat Edition has been bottled at 46% vol., and is thus stronger and more robust than the First Edition of Angels' Nectar.
Like the First Edition, the Rich Peat Edition bottle features an Angel shaped fractal design, but this time the Angel is pewter in colour, is larger, and has been printed directly onto the bottle, for greater impact.
Commenting on the new addition, Highfern Ltd founder Robert Ransom said, 'Its great to see our range of malts expand. International interest in the Rich Peat Edition has also been particularly exciting. Our Dutch launch will take place at the Hielander Whisky Festival in Alkmaar next week, and we also have bottles on their way to Germany and South Korea'.
- Angels' share – the traditional name given to the whisky lost to evaporation during maturation.
- Blended Malt – a category of whisky which is a blend of malt whiskies, with no grain whisky, previously known as Vatted Malt.
