Tasting Notes

"Though smoke is the dominant flavor, this scotch isn't a one-trick pony. The sweet and somewhat rubbery smoke is met with a smattering of nuts and fruit and some warm spice. Finishes a little dry and quick - poof! - but not a bad dram to sip, especially for those who lean toward toward the smoky side."
