Tasting Notes

"Rich dried fruits appear on the nose with a bit of that sherry-funk quality that is a bit oxidized and smoky. The whisky is considerably creamy, like you can almost cut it with a knife. Malty, chocolaty, and vanilla notes are on the palate and the finish is on the woody and chewy side."
