COLOR: Golden Caramel.
Nose: Very warm, rounded vanilla and butterscotch aromas initially, giving way to honeysuckle and ripened mango.
Palate: Bright cinnamon at first, leading into flamed orange peel, then savory, earthy notes of black plum and petrichor.
Finish: Sweet and upbeat medium finish that tapers off gracefully.
WITH A SPLASH OF WATER: The layer of fruity, floral aromas is activated with a splash of water. The nose gives ripe mango, coconut, and tangerine, the palate is toasted salted cashew and lemon balm, and the finish is longer and leaner, like a walk down a long dock at the beach.
This whiskey is a celebration! At first nose I thought that oak/vanillin would be the overarching flavor, but this whiskey is so much more than that- it's like a holiday punch with notes of ripe mango, black plum, flamed orange peel, and cinnamon subtly rounded out with subtle butterscotch and sweet white flower. This whiskey is a lively sipper that gives way to a finish that is thoughtful and gentle with a delicate goodbye. Perfect to be enjoyed with friends or a good book. @kat1ek
