Tasting Notes

"It opens up on fresh juniper notes, accompanied by coriander, and supported by a subtle layer of malt. A whisper of orange liqueur makes for a well-integrated and soft nose. The palate is fairly sweet, with a good amount of brown sugar, although the orange and citrus notes are profound as well. The sweetness and juniper notes linger for a little while."
