"Attempting to describe this whiskey brings grilled meat to mind: it's savory, unctuous, and offers a touch of smoke. Its sweeter flavors include dark chocolate and dried figs; a potentially off-putting note of sulfur comes through on the finish, however, taking this dram into stranger territory that may not be for everyone."
