Tasting Notes

"Robinson’s stylish game is on full display in this impressive whisky. It is a refined monster with a complex nose that darts between berries, dark plums and oak smoke dressed with herbal and wild floral tones. This sophisticated nose is seasoned with spice on the palate with a range of oak flavors that lands like a figure skater. The rich spicy finish sends anything in its path into the boards."
