Tasting Notes

"As the name suggests, the color of the whiskey is dark as are the spices and fruits you find in the dram. The texture is nicely full and smooth. There are times when you want loads of complexity in your whiskey, a whiskey to ponder your future. And then there are other times, when you're at your favorite dive bar, you know, the one with the great jukebox and the crappy lighting. This is the whiskey that you order. "
