Tasting Notes

"Right out of the gate the sweetness and oak spice break out into a classic full-blown fisticuffs. Floral apple blossom and a nice peppery spice circle like a whirlpool in the glass. Oaky tobacco is complimented by the flavors of a master baker’s yeasty raisin bread drenched in honey. This is beautifully constructed single malt that flows instead of overpowers right through the finish."
