Tasting Notes

"Ghosted Reserve is a surprising pale straw in the glass given its age. On the nose, find honey, malt, and a balance of floral and spicy notes, with light apple and citrus in the background. The palate is soft and creamy, with more honey and malt, vanilla, oak, and a bit of baking spice. On the finish, find smoke and oak that turns astringent after a moment."
