"Hello gorgeous! This veritable sideshow of a whisky introduces itself with a scent that is unmistakable: Brach's Strawberry Bon Bon candies. After the ripe red fruit settles the smoke beckons you to dive right in. Doing so showcases big flavor, such as meaty barbecue, grilled tropical fruits, nutty grains, and of course luxurious tobacco smoke. Step right up and have a taste."
