Very Good,
Strong Recommendation

Tasting Notes:

Brown butter, hazelnuts, vanilla, cigar box, and sage on the nose - this is a stately whisky. Smooth and fruit-forward, with warm vanilla bean and mocha on the palate, followed by toasted oak and rancio. Elegant and subtle stone fruit abounds on the finish.
