Tasting Notes

"Peaches and toffee open up the nose, along with spice, molasses and rum raisin, and a range of tropical fruits from green apple to melon. Soft entry on the palate, with spicy dry oak and tannins, chocolate, and citrus zest. Finish offers more oak, along with pine and spearmint, spice, more chocolate, and a touch of salt. Chocolate continues to come on more as the whiskey opens up."
