Tasting Notes

"The nose is rather intense from the get go with sweet maple, vanilla, and a mild suggestion of peat smoke. The whisky opens up on the palate and feels moderately full with a good amount of malt whisky in the blend. The peat smoke and sea salt make a more grandiose appearance towards the end. The whisky shows a fair amount of value for the money."
