Tasting Notes

"Fat raisins drenched in a smoky comforting blanket accented with a subtle trace of doused fireworks. Fresh cereals weave with the gentle peat from the nose. Smoke and honey are playful on the palate but it’s the rye-laced brightness with clove and cinnamon spice that makes this blend a showpiece. Threads of smoky oak and honey candy melt into the finish. A bang on representation of two whisky styles coming together as one."
