Tasting Notes

"This is an autumn sweater of a whiskey to wrap yourself up in on a chilly night. Toasty, sweet, and spicy cereal with vanilla frosting (reminiscent of Cinnamon Toast Crunch!) gets an added spice blast of Red Hot candies, tempered by fruit flavors of pear, golden apple, orange pekoe black tea, sarsaparilla, rosemary and thyme. Sure, the traditional way to sip whiskey is in a glass, but this one wouldn't be out of place in a favorite mug. It will make a delightful base for an Old Fashioned too. "
