Excellent,
Highly Recommended

Tasting Notes:

The namesake Christmas cookie spice of this malt is deftly balanced by scent of clover honey and a subtle hint of wood smoke. Sweet, malted flavors of barley dominate the palate’s entry, but then yield to a return of the piquant flavors found on the nose.
