"The aroma is filled with scents of homemade apple pie--the buttery crust, spiced apples, and even the side of vanilla ice cream comes to light. The palate follows suit with some oak spices and a touch of citrus for added measure. The whisky has a creaminess to it, but finishes on the spicy side, and is far from sticky sweet. "
