"Lots going on aromatically including sweet smoke, beef jerky, malt, toasted barrel spices and vanilla. There are hints of red fruits around the edges which become more apparent when tasting. This dram is full of spices on the palate and the finish is on the bittersweet side. Consider adding just a touch of water to really get the full scope of the flavors, particularly the fruity ones. This is a real treat."
