This is an important category for Whisky flavours and it is also complex with no single aroma molecule representing the full flavour profile of what is represented by this term. We are referring to the smells from Malted Barley, and these may be “grain-like,” or “burnt” or “like biscuits.”
The aroma profile we choose in the Aroma Academy Whisky Aroma Kit is a generic example of a malty aroma character as no single aroma expression can fully capture the character of this odour category. If you closely examine the Aroma Strip you will be able to experience the lightly burnt nuance in this interpretation of the Malty Aroma.
See our Whisky Aroma Kit for more information.
