Tasting Notes

"There's a prominent aroma filled with notes such as vanilla, menthol, oak shavings, fresh green and dried herbs. The body is on the light side and the whiskey is very spicy and hot (alcohol-wise). Although the flavors are overall pleasant, the heat from the whiskey needs to be tamed a bit. Could be richer and the flavors could be more harmonious. Would pair this with an ale rather than add water to tame the heat. (review from batch 6/aged 8 months)"
