Tasting Notes

"The aroma is filled with fruits, particularly peaches, pears, and orange peel. There's also a nice toasted cereal aroma and milk chocolate. As you taste you'll find the whisky to be creamy and a little slick. More of the fruit flavors come through again, but there's a mild cinnamon spiced note as well as vanilla. The whisky is on the sweet side with just a touch of bitterness. Would be perfect to end a meal and have either as dessert or paired with cheesecake or a fruit trifle. "
