Tasting Notes

"The tell-tale notes of an immature whiskey dominate the nose. There's a lot of raw grain, wet green wood, apricot, and a whiffs of fudge, sawdust, bubblegum, and sweet corn. In the mouth, it's chocolate-y, oily, and boasts fruity notes of berries and cherries. Toward the back-end, it gets rich, with caramel corn, peanut butter, peaches, and a bit of saltiness. "
