Tasting Notes

"The nose is filled with fruits especially orange peel, but there's a bit of a nutty quality as well. On the palate the whiskey is moderately full and a bit slick with cinnamon (mild) and oak coming through here. Meanwhile the finish shows a gentle ale quality and a bittersweet finish. There's just a moderate heat from the proof, but very drinkable without added water. All in all, a very serviceable daily dram. "
