Tasting Notes

"The whisky has a touch of smoke along with a myriad of other aromas--toasted malt, honey, nuts, and gentle spices. Fruit aromas are also in abundance with notes of pears, oranges, and dried cherries. The aromas carry to the palate where the whisky shows depth and a long finish. Still a lot of life left in this 41 year-old dram."
