Tasting Notes

"The modest sandalwood aroma is quickly overtaken by the spiced maple syrup aroma. The taste profile has buttered cinnamon toast that has been slightly burnt and baked pears served with ice cream. Despite these rich sweet tastes, the whisky finishes somewhat dry and tingles the gums."
