Flavor Notes:

With each sip of the Malt Julep, the palate is delighted by layers of pear, mint, and the warm embrace of candied hazelnut. The amontillado sherry bridges the whisky's golden raisin notes with the sweet pear, while the absinthe adds a bright, anise-kissed counterpoint, making the pear sing. This cocktail is not just a drink; it’s a tribute to the age-old Sherry Cobbler and the storied Prescription Julep, celebrating the timeless art of cocktail craft.

The Malt Julep is a testament to the enduring allure of a well-crafted cocktail. Whether enjoyed in a bustling cityscape or the quiet countryside, it's a drink that brings together worlds, eras, and flavors. So, here's to tradition, to innovation, and to the endless joy of discovery that awaits within the world of fine whisky.
