Tasting Notes

"This highly unusual whiskey is wildly different from almost anything else on the market. Though it has the flavors of butterscotch, vanilla, and freshly-cut wood one often finds in American whiskeys, it also has a straightforward, simple sweet quality; tasted blind, one might think it's a molasses-based rum aged in American oak. Regardless of how one classifies it, it's an enjoyable and interesting spirit."
