"The nose opens with vanilla-soaked cinnamon that escapes the prickling alcohol, and quickly moves to chocolate-covered berries, orange zest, grass, and honey. The charred oak finishes the nose comfortably. Hot in the mouth (it is, after all, 125 proof) with an incredibly wet syrup quality there’s an impressive balance of grass and chocolate. Floral caramel and sherried nuts are supported by the vanilla and oak, with a small hint of charred smoke at the end. The finish is long and reminiscent of toffee apples and sweet sugars. An incredible whisky. "
