Tasting Notes

"Upon first whiff there are strong notes of clover honey, with a bit Hawaiian ginger. The body is light and drinkable, with some candied almonds, bitter spiced orange peel, and caramelized vanilla. Soft bodied with a quick finish it is a good 16 year but nothing to get a fuss over. "
