Tasting Notes

"Lots of vanilla pods, but also subtle notes of raisin, balsamic, bitter orange peel and a good amount of triple sec. Some soft spices in the background—think cinnamon. The palate feels a bit more engineerd: the syrupy, sweet, drying influence of the sherry octaves is undeniable. It lacks a bit of balance between spirit and cask."
