Tasting Notes

"The nose has a soft smoke profile with sweet malt and almonds. Nori seaweed sheets and orange zest are present as well. Without water, the whisky is dry and spicy. With water, there is a little honey to soften the whisky. The finish has a cigar ash profile. (This tasting note is for Batch #2) "
