Tasting Notes

"Subtle dried fruit aromas, raisins and dates primarily, reveal a strong sherry influence on this whiskey. There's a very light rye pepperiness but then the sherry once again takes over. The other end of the spectrum from many of the rock 'em, sock 'em ryes available, and more of an intro style."
