"With barely a whiff of sweetness, the nose belies the nature of the whiskey. Sweetness rises to a strong level on the palate with vanilla and baking spices initially, then builds to stone fruit. Mouthfeel is gentle and pleasant. The finish transitions from sweet to spice-forward with clove, cinnamon and tobacco."
