Tokaji is a sweet dessert wine from Hungary, similar to sauternes, made from grapes affected by noble rot.

Tasting Notes

"A very challenging, divisive whisky that people love or hate. It doesn't work for me. Nose of over-ripe figs, cough syrup, heavy chocolate, coffee, and berries. Something very funky in the taste, like rotten fruit mixed with leather, chocolate, figs, toffee, and a sprinkle of white pepper. But these familiar flavors combine into something really odd and not altogether pleasant."
