Tasting Notes

"The interplay of three different styles of casks is fun to tease apart in this complex scotch. Fruit and vanilla come together with a subtly jammy flavor, balanced by hints of almond, orange peel, and sea salt. It finishes with a light sweetness and a lingering note reminiscent of ripe raspberries."
