"The sweetness of syrupy fruit salad leads on the nose, with brown sugar, spearmint, and rye spice. The palate is smooth and easy, although a bit light, with more spice, crisp apples, and berries. The finish offers char and maple syrup, and a combination of Luxardo cherries and orange zest which lends an enjoyably smooth Old Fashioned quality to the whiskey on the backend. "
