Extraordinary,
Ultimate Recommendation

Tasting Notes:

In an epic battle of sherry butt versus peat smoke, the luscious barrel notes of dried fruit and acacia honey narrowly win. The delicate smoke reappears on the palate and nicely balances the barrage of decadent barrel flavors. A truly transcendent whiskey with complexity and body to spare.
