"Although the assemblage of whiskey here is rather exotic, the nose shows classic high-tone notes of orange, grapefruit peel, and cracked, pink peppercorn that is juxtaposed by a weighty impression of vanilla cream and toasted oak. The palate is fairly light for a whiskey from this label, but the older spirits in the blend bring an admirable sweetness and a roundness that leads to a finish that lingers with honeycomb and slight hint of spice."
