Tasting Notes

"The nose showed brown butter, caramel, and apples, especially on further nosings. There's some char smoke and oak also, but they're both really integrated with the sweet notes on the palate. Lots of cinnamon here too, but again, the whiskey is moderately sweet to make this an easy sipper. Sadly the sample bottle didn't reveal the barrel number or the proof, but going by the taste, this sample whiskey was around the 50% ABV mark at least. Warming and satisfying. If you add a splash of water, you get some nutty aromas as well. But you can absolutely drink this as is. Really solid whiskey. If the price is right, pick up a bottle."
