Tasting Notes

"The first whiff of this whiskey will have you wondering if this is really an Irish spirit. Sweet tobacco and toffee take the reins to guide you in. The first sip is punchy, full of rich spiciness, charred wood, and that beautiful sherry finish. It finishes strong with sea salt and smoky dark chocolate. Blackadder has bottled a spirit for the complex whiskey lover to pick apart."
