Tasting Notes

"Sweet maple covered pecans and dark rye bread come to the forefront upon nosing. As you taste, the sweetness overtakes you at first, but the whisky catches up to make it less unctuous and rummy. The alcohol seems to be a bit out of balance in the glass. Overall, however, the whisky would be fine with a large chunk of ice in your glass."
