"On the nose, classic vanilla and sweet maple notes along with toasted barrel spices accent the aroma. The body is of average weight with an initial softness on the tongue. Once again the toasted barrel spices come through offering some dimension to the dram. The mild sweetness of the whisky tempers the spicy notes to a pleasant experience. Dried red fruits, toasted sugar, and oak notes are found on a bittersweet finish. "
