Tasting Notes

"The Mizunara wood makes for a more exotic Irish whiskey bouquet. Beeswax, raw honey, sandalwood, vanilla shake, and traces of tropical citrus fruit. Initially the palate is all texture, luxuriously oily. Then flavors of vanilla chews, dry malt, and peppery smoke. The finish hangs on to give you some fresh grapefruit. This shows the beginnings of a great old malt."
