Tasting Notes

"Aromatically the whiskey is very light with thin notes of smoke and caramelized wood. A touch of candied pecan at the tip of the palate quickly transgresses to an assertive, smoky oak which lingers at the back of the palate. The body is round, and finishes with an oaky sweet ginger character. Fairly well balanced, the smoke in the whiskey would lend well in a Boulevardier or a Horse Feather cocktail. Since we’re going with the horse theme, why not give your drink a Horse’s Neck garnish. "
