"Bright spearmint opens on the nose, along with rye spice, cedar wood, vanilla, brown sugar, cinnamon, and a touch of licorice. The palate booms its way open with big rye spice, nutmeg and cloves, astringent oak, and burnt toast. A long-lasting finish then takes a surprisingly sweet and rich turn, with resonating vanilla toffee and crème brûlée, backed by pepper, oak, and spice, elevating this dram from a good whiskey to an irresistible one."
