Tasting Notes

"The aroma begins with a lemon tart complete with pastry shell. There's a bit of vanilla custard there as well. These flavors continue on the palate where the grain flavors reveal themselves a bit more. It's easy to drink with a gentle cinnamon bite to end the dram. Certainly something you could mix with, but don't overlook drinking it neat especially on a warm day. Good value."
