Excellent,
Highly Recommended

Tasting Note:

Powerful. Traditional. Worldly. This classic, heavy hitting scotch packs a punchy nose of smoked moss, grilled cedar planks, dark leather, black garlic, toasted vine leaves, burnt tobacco, musty citrus, dried hay and burnt sugarcane. Equally intense flavors mirror with additional baking spice, wormwood, potato skins, charred green peppers, crushed black peppercorn, and vanilla ash.
