Tasting Notes

"This whiskey doesn't offer up any surprises. The usual suspects appear such as honey, vanilla, and wood spices. This isn't necessarily a bad thing; sometimes you aren't looking for the pomp and circumstance. In those situations where you just want whiskey in your belly, this will do just fine."
