Tasting Notes

"The peat smoke is present on the nose, but really comes alive when a few drops of water are added. Hey, it's close to 116 proof, it's okay to add water. There is a vegetal quality on the nose as well as hay. This is not a sweet whiskey, but there's a just a spoonful of apple butter that makes the medicine go down, in the most delightful way. "
