Tasting Notes

"The aroma, particularly on further inhalations, is heavy on breakfast oatmeal loaded with fresh cream and sugar. Some vanilla and a hint of mint is present as well as savory spices (think curry). The body is soft, but not substantial. The whiskey is young, but not raw. There's enough of a complexity in the whiskey that merits a purchase beyond simple curiosity."
