Tasting notes:
The heart of eye glistens gently within the oak influences, as its sharp edges are softened by 18 long years ageing. The nose on this whisky is floral and buoyant, with a surprising level of energy for such an old American whiskey. Notes of oak and spice strike with assorted confectionary and a gooey caramel layered over orange peel and stewed vanilla apricot soothes the sparks of alcohol whipping the senses with mild rye.
