    • Nose
      There's seas salt, a very light smokiness. I love the mint. There's also plenty of wood, no surprise, since it's matured in refill bourbon barrels. There's a flowery smell, along with barley and a hint of citrus that's reminiscent of Old Pulteney-expressions.
    • Taste
      It's spicy. Again some smoke to go with aniseed and salty licorice.
    • Finish
      A medium finish, too bad it isn't longer. Dominated by barley and wood and some smoke near the end.
