Tasting Notes

"The nose is dry and citrusy with a breeze of gingery spiciness. On the palate, candied ginger, grapefruit peel, cinnamon and pine needle add a freshness, with cocoa and more woodsiness on the palate. It's quite drying on its own. A drop of water imparts a more ginger bread/ginger snap taste. This would be a good whisky to sip alongside charcuterie or a bacon tart! "
