"This was created to provide a whisky that paired well with cigars without one overpowering the other. Regardless of whether you smoke or not, this is one for after dinner. Coffee, brûléed sugar, dried herbs, and wet tobacco greet you on the nose. The body is smooth and honey filled with pears, raisins and baking spices. Track this down and buy all you can find."
