Tasting Notes

"Spicy ginger, dark cocoa and cashews awaken the palate. Then orchard fruits and berries kick in with a slight waft of smoke left over from the initial bourbon barrel aging. The overall effect is subtle and smooth, very easy to sip. Would be delicious with a bite of dark chocolate on the side!"
