Lordly, NAS, 40 %
Well, this is rather special. Lordly is a blended whisky, made from whisky produced in Scotland and in France. The blend has received a finish in cognac casks that previously held De Luze Cognac.
The company behind this product is Maison Boinaud, a compnay that has produced cognac for 24 generations. They are today the largest land owner in Grand Champagne, and own brands like De Luze, Naulin and J. Dupont.
The bottle for Lordly is very easy to spot due to the rather extravagant stopper. It is all summed up with the subtitle Just for Kings.
You can buy Lordly in Norway at NOK 950 (8274401).
Nose: Malt, strawberries, and vanilla. Rather mild on the nose.
Taste: Soft and with medium body. Vanilla, sweet apples, and white pepper. Perfume and floral notes.
Finish: Short to medium long finish. Less sweet now, more spicy. Appears more watery towards the end. A touch astringent - a little dry.
Comment: An OK blend, but not very exciting.
