"The aroma has sweet cookie notes, peat smoke, and winter baking spices along with sweet toasted barley notes. On the palate, the whiskey hits the tip of your tongue with sweetness and continues with coffee grounds, vanilla and dried fruits. The finish is spicy with cinnamon and you are left with smoke in your retro-nasal cavity as you exhale."
