Tasting Notes

"The Whistler Calvados Cask Finish is proof that an apple brandy barrel can do wonderful things to whiskey. It's deliciously fruit-forward, delivering notes of juicy apple, subtle honey and vanilla, and hints of thyme and flowers on the finish. It's a very pleasant whiskey, one that calls out for enjoyment with a cheese board or a crisp fall day."
