"The wine finish really brings a whole other dimension to the taste. There's a cherry wood aroma along with dried fruits like dates and dried berries. The taste goes even deeper with the fruit and spice and brings a sense of mulled wine. There is a bright acidity throughout the dram which helps to not make the whisky fall flat."
