Tasting Notes

Details

This dark golden whisky opens mellow and offers complexity with sweet peaches and mirabelles, coconut, vanilla and sawdust. The palate is creamy and bu1ery with mirabelles, marzipan, sweet honey, while the subtle, slightly spicy oak is well integrated. Expect a long and sweet finish with more honey and marzipan and lingering spices.
