Tasting Notes

"The nose offers vanilla, oak, caramel and brown sugar. There's a lurking bit of heat there, but not as much as could be expected of a nearly 70% abv whiskey. A velvety smooth mouthfeel may trick you into letting your guard down for a second before giving way to a hot explosion -- sip easy, friends. Search beneath the heat to find a charred molasses, brown sugar and oaky profile. This is a rich, full and oily dram, and it's a heavyweight that can throw punches and knock you down. Water allows you to appreciate more of its complexity and depth - with vanilla and caramel shining through, while taming the beast further with an ice cube offers a tandem of dry oak and wood, with a deep, lingering vanilla sweetness."
