Riverbourne Identity is true to the title, “The Source” . Here, the whisky’s flavour is derived from the spirit itself and its unique fermentation. The aroma is fresh, vibrant and inviting. The nose is playful of citrus cream and sappy, new oak tones. With time, crisp green fruits emerge as does subtle vanilla that touches the sides of the nose.
Sipping the whisky is no problem; the initial flavour is that of puckering citrus and woody notes. this then gives way to juicy, under-ripe green apple mixed with grapefruit. The more you sip, the more the tongue unravels creme brulee and citrus tarts before experiencing dashes of vanilla on exhale.
