"The interesting notes of a spirit distilled from a chocolate oatmeal stout struggle against the raw imbalance of a whiskey rushed through small barrels and short aging time. There's chocolate and cereal grain at the forefront, with salted caramel, honey, smoke, oak, and briny peat. It's a bunch of interesting flavors that have not been given the time to settle down into a cohesive, mature whiskey. "
