The Dramble reviews Seven Seals The Age of Scorpio

Bottle Name: Seven Seals The Age of Scorpio

ABV: 49.7%
Distillery: Undisclosed Swiss
Region: Europe Glass Weight: 500g

A rather mysterious Zodiac bottling from Seven Seals with no cask information available that I’ve been able to find. So, we’re left with ‘whisky’ at 49.7% ABV, 365 bottles (as is the case of all in this series) and a price of £67.95 from Master of Malt.

Nose: Roasted nuts (cashews and hazelnuts) together with a big creamy quality from Chantilly, meringue and cardamon-spiced custard. Dried fruits and berries join a fresh fruit salad bathed in vanilla extract. Water offers powdered ginger, rich tea biscuits and golden, toasted cereals.

Taste: Overtly sweet and highly spiced with cinnamon, ginger, pepper and nutmeg. Candied orchard and stone fruits join juicy tinned fruits with an over-generous spoon of caster sugar sprinkled over the top. Almonds and hazelnuts are toasted and then served with whipped cream. Reduction unleashed the oak monster with dry, tannic wood, chocolate and vanilla extract.

Finish: Medium with pear drops and berry asides together with cinnamon and pepper spicing.

The Age of Scorpio is just too sweet and too spicy for my palate. All of the notes work together, but the volumes of the sugar and cask influence are just dialled up way too far for my tastes.
