Tasting Notes

"This is indeed an old fashioned style of whiskey. It goes for upfront punch and pizzazz. The aroma slings cloves, oranges, and fistfuls of malt powder. Much of this continues on the palate, bitter orange, dark malt, and heavy handed spices. To be honest, it’s all a little chaotic. At the finish the flavors dry up and wind down so fast it’s as if the circus was barely in town."
