Excellent,
Highly Recommended

Tasting Notes:

Treble notes of butterscotch and cotton candy give the initial impression of this unusual medium-weight whisky. Bourbon-like vanilla and char notes on the palate give shape to playful sweet grain and dried pear, building in intensity to a dry, spicy conclusion.
