The label states “A fine blend of Scotch Whisky and the Purest Quality Spirit”.
Voltic Nigeria are the producers.
A more globally connected brand would be hard to find.
The image on the attractive bottle is rather striking – an imposing gothic eagle – which bears a resemblance to that in the Nigerian Coat Of Arms – and lends a degree of localisation to the brand.
It’s presented at 42.8% Nigerian strength – with added caramel.
For this style of whisky – it’s quite light in colour.
There’s that intense caramelly nose – a sweet graininess & a hint of smoke.
The palate is pleasantly smooth. A rich mouthfeel – a touch of biscuity malt & a faint burnt note to add character.
The finish is like gently glowing embers slowly fading.
I’m glad this Eagle flew over to me!
