Tasting Notes

"This should please the outdoors-men (and women) with aromas such as beef jerky, leather, crushed bugs (think ants and beetles), and fallen apples that were left on the ground. There's even a little pine note to be had. Peat smoke is there, but is playing well with the others. The whisky is round and soft as you taste, but goes back to those leather and spice notes after a brief sweet note."
