Tasting Notes

"With an aroma of vanilla and freshly baked sweet buns, Eight and Sand is an inviting whiskey. It's soft and sweet, with flavors of apple, nutmeg, cinnamon, and treacle. It's pleasantly warming at its 88 proof. Affordably priced and very easy to like, it's positioned to be an excellent choice for a session whiskey."
