Tasting Notes

"This whisky does a nice job of encapsulating the hallmarks of Speyside while the use of American oak barrels give it a modern flair. A textbook nose of orchard fruits, vanilla, light smoke, and notable salinity. The palate starts off light and creamy while providing fresh green apples and bananas cut up by sharp wood spices. The spices fade fast on the finish but are complimented by a touch of dry peat."
