"Whole spices and dried herbs such as cardamom, peppercorns, and bay leaves fill your senses when sticking your nose in the glass. There's a leathery quality that's mixed in the aroma but there's enough of a sweet pastry nose that the whiskey doesn't go into full Marlboro-man territory. The palate has fresh marjoram and orange rind (including the pith) along with toasted cereal grains. The flavors all work together without one note outshining the others."
