Tasting Notes

"Honey and cereal are abundant on the nose along with a dollop of vanilla. This malt continues with the breakfast notes and a dash of cinnamon on the palate. Pairing this with a serving of haggis and reciting a few verses of Robbie Burns' poems would do very nicely, but you could also simply raise a glass to the bard and enjoy."
