Windsor 17 Blended Scotch Whisky. Image courtesy Diageo. Don’t confuse this with Windsor Canadian…this is a Blended Scotch from Diageo bottled for the Korean market.

The nose is light and clean at first, with a touch of black tea and honey, licorice, lemon zest, orange peel, and vanilla. The taste has a complex blend of spices with black pepper and white pepper, cinnamon, and curry powder that dominate at first, but fade to reveal hints of honey, vanilla, dark chocolate, and roasted cashews. The finish is short, but all of the flavors fade away consistently. (November, 2013)
