Tasting Notes

"There's kind of a dark rummy quality to this Scotch. Caramel, coffee, maybe a tinge of cherry and is that banana? The palate reflects more of the bourbon barrels it's aged in, but it is the finish where the Scotch barley notes finally make their appearance. The finish is short and sweet making this a cheap and cheerful dram."
