Tasting Notes

"The exact provenance of this whisky is a mystery, but it has the hallmarks of an Islay. Moderately peated with traces of vanilla, a fruit-forward note of pear, and a pleasantly assertive brininess that lingers on the finish, it's a very enjoyable scotch available in limited quantities that's worth seeking out."
