Tasting Notes

"Intense cereal and honey notes take over on the nose with some bright lemony notes. The whisky is very peppery and cinnamon-y on our palate before presenting more fruit of pears and peaches. Adding water is not a good idea as the sweet malt disappears and leaves the whisky flat and waxy. "
