Tasting Notes

"With soft orange notes on the nose, as well as cocoa powder, almonds and subtle furniture polish, this is a true delight. The warming spices, which make an encore on the palate, are the cherry on top. There's licorice, honey and dried fruits too, and a hint of cough syrup, reminiscent of old style Irish pot still whiskey. This is seriously very good, and should appeal to any whisky drinker."
