Tasting Notes

"Toasted grain and tons of dried fruits (oranges, berries) on the aroma. A touch of smoke and gentle spice there too. Sweet and fruity as you taste, the whiskey flavors comes in on the mid-palate taking it out of brandy territory. More dried fruits come in on the bittersweet finish. Pleasant, but not super complex. Good value on a sherried whiskey."
