Tasting Notes

"With a color striking the difference between a young whisky and a ruby-toned wine this malt shows decadent red currant and baked berry flavors on a backbone of toasted cereal malt. The palate shows a nice balance of spicy red fruit and sweet barley cake. The finish offers a wisp of smoke and dried grape."
