Tasting Notes

"There is a zesty quality on the nose with bright lemon rind and sea salt. Cereal and breakfast tea are in the mix as well. The whisky feels full on your palate with more citrus, this time in the form of dried oranges. Oak comes through towards the finish which is lengthy. When you consider the price, this under-the-radar whisky should be given much more attention."
