"You know when you first walk into an office supply store? That smell of paper, glue, ink, and maybe cleaning product? Well this whiskey smells like that. The weirdest part is that it’s not a totally unpleasant aroma. The whiskey is not heavily sherried, but shows a light Oloroso nuttiness and raisin character. A bit of water only accentuates the adhesive gluey-ness. "
