"Coldfoot Ed. 1 definitely calls out for a cold night in the great outdoors. Aromas of savory stewed fruit and earthy mushrooms are densely packed together in the nose. A heavy, broth-y waft sets a dense backdrop as the spirit opens up. The palate opens with a dry crack of sage and apple followed by more heavy umami flavors. The finish is a bit tannic, like black walnut, but overall a very adventurous single malt."
