Tasting Notes

"This whiskey opens like a beautiful apple and pear tart coming out of the oven: brightly fruity and deliciously warm. The baking spices don't disappear on the palate; in fact, candied ginger and orange peels demand your attention immediately. The rye punch you're expecting never happens. Instead, you get a balanced, sweet bourbon. "
