House Stark – Dalwhinnie Winter’s Frost
Mid gold color. A very fruity nose, almost-brandy like nose delivers white grape, pineapple, kiwi, Meyer lemon, and a touch of sherry. Vanilla, brown sugar, malt, and oak are present, but take a back seat to the esters. Over time, toasty malt, fruitcake, and caramel emerge. Mellow and malty palate at first, followed by a wave of high-toned pear, cinnamon, Constant Comment tea, dried pineapple, ginger, honey, and wax. A spiced, warming, slightly bitter finish reminds me of black tea. Thick mouth feel, sharp on the palate. Again, a nice intro to Dalwhinnie.
