Tasting Notes

"Lots of sherry influence here paired with the robust malt notes bring dark toast, nuts, and dark chocolate to the nose. Raisins and orange peel are found here as well. On the palate the whisky is chewy with flavors leaning more bitter than sweet. The finish brings more of those found on the nose with the malted barley and oxidized sherry flavors. "
