Tasting Notes

"A creamy, malty, honeyed nose with a whiff of wood varnish leads to a whiskey that boasts notes of sherry spice, butterscotch, candied nuts, a hint of fruit, and a bit of oak. A little bitter fruit and straw show up during a medium finish. It's Jameson with the rough edges polished off by the higher single malt content."
