"Initial notes of sweet malt and loads of fruit greet you on the nose --think apples, peach, and orange zest. Vanilla and coconut come into play, particularly on further nosings. The whiskey is sweet on the palate with a rich and oily mouthfeel. Fruit forward flavors dominate here. Gentle barrels spices and a touch of char smoke finish the experience."
