Tasting Notes

"The initial nose is an abrasive assault of alcohol and raw grain, with the signature green wood and raw grain of very young whiskey. A splash of water tames the alcohol and brings out a bit of honey. The taste is grassy and bitter, dominated by wood with hints of mint and mocha struggling to be noticed. "
