"The nose shows bright orange peel, toasted cereal, and dark caramel. The palate has a moderate amount of oak coupled with a rich malt flavor. Only mildly sweet with the tart and bitter flavors peaking through along with a briny note. There's a fair amount of barrel spices on offer which provides another dimension to the dram. A solid offering and a fine one to enjoy post-meal. "
