Tasting Notes

"This whisky seems to get a greater influence from the sherry barrels with notes of raisins covered in dark chocolate and toasted almonds. There are flashes of freshly peeled lemon zest that pop up every now and then, but especially on the finish. Despite these tastes, the whisky is not as unctuous as it sounds, but rather graceful."
