Tasting Notes

"The whisky is pale yellow and very fluid in the glass. The nose is pleasant and slightly buttery with touches of sand. The body opens with a touch of cedar and gentle notes of allspice. It is slightly briny and rich with malt. The finish is peppery and filled with dried Lapsang Suchong tea and aged cigars. "
