. Wings of the eagle is aged 16 years in sherry-seasoned American and European oak casks and bottled at 44.5% ABV and priced at €90 .
Nose: Very nice start with orange peel , candied oranges as well, quite a lot of oak wood (like!), and more sweet apricot , and a touch of dried fruit, mainly fig and date, that work quite well with pine resin sort of notes in the background, as well as heather honey , and vanilla. I tried looking for some smoke, or peat but there’s almost none of that…
Palate: Good mouthfeel, with more dried fruit, vanilla and spice. Hints of Marzipan, and quite a lot of yummy oak, pepper, and nutmeg, all well-integrated indeed, a hint of bitter cocoa and peat on the end notes, which adds a nice dimension (and yes, we’re in HP land).
Finish: Cocoa ,bitter chocolate, wood and some more earthy peat.
