Tasting Notes

"This whisky has a soothing, mellow aroma and exhibits soft spices with a touch of cocoa and light smoke. The mouth-feel is light-bodied and drying, with just a little bit of toffee and walnut before finishing with the flavor of Raisinettes, the classic movie theater chocolate-covered raisins. Over all it is well balanced and smooth drinking, a solid choice for those cold winter nights and pot roast dinners. I found that a couple drops of water soothed the drying property of the sherry-finishing and transitioned to soft floral notes akin to violets. "
