Tasting Notes

"The maturity of this Scotch is evident from nose to palate, and we don't need to see any I.D. to prove it! Elegant flavors of orange marmalade and honey are balanced with silky creme brulee and a hint of earthy smoke. This is an exceptional whisky you'll want to sip slowly. A drop of water will open it up even more, but it's not really necessary."
