Nose: Complex nose, herbal and spicy, vanilla, grain biscuits, caramel, light roasted peanuts, walnuts, butter.
Palate: Minty and herbal right off the bat, then caramel, malt sugar, creamy vanilla, pepper, light apple and cherry, nuts.
Finish: Peppery, apple, vanilla, brown sugar. Quite long. Slightly bitter too.
With Water: More cereal grains, creamy vanilla. Sweeter. A few drops open it up.
Overall: A very unique and fun, complex grain whiskey. It is like a high-rye bourbon with a handful of granola thrown in. quite delicious.
