Driven by a fruit-forward, floral nose and the classic cocoa and roasted nut flavors that form our single malt's core identity, Lot 13 is an elegant, nuanced expression of single malt.
On the nose, honeysuckle leads into yeasty ale and rich Mexican hot chocolate (this will show up again on the palate). Plum and fruit leather are intensely present as well, but will fade out into golden raisins and apricots with time.
Upon first sips, pale ale leads into cocoa powder and Mexican chocolate (think cinnamon and chile flakes). Ripe nectarine, greengage plum, lemon, and honey show in subsequent sips.
With time, you'll find roasted peanuts, hazelnut, and honeydew, as well as guava in the long breath out.
Sip neat to fully experience all the nuances and depth of flavor, or add nothing more than a single large ice cube. This is as good as whiskey gets.
