Tasting Notes

"Sherry bomb! The sweet, raisiny aromas of PX or oloroso sherry come through right away on this richly colored rice whisky. It's opulent with flavors of dark fruit, vanilla, raisins with a long, sweet finish. It's a rice whisky, but this bottle is all about the barrels. For anyone seeking a dessert, end-of-night kind of whisky, this limited edition fits the bill."
