Tasting Notes

"This is a very grapey whisky, owed no doubt to the red wine and sherry casks it comes in contact with. A subtle waft of sweet smoke cuts through it, and there's a pleasant date and toffee finish. Tastes like something more full bodied than it is. Definitely something you want to sip toward the end of an evening with or for dessert."
