Tasting notes


Vanilla and fudge from the virgin oak cask, malted rye and freshly baked rye loaf from the distillate. Malts and cocoa with hint of citrus.


Rich mouthfeel. Aroma has notes of vanilla, dried pears and figs, caramel, licorice, herbs, buttered toast and dark chocolate. Crystal malt gives gentle extra sweetness.


Long, it lingers on the insides of the cheeks. Spiciness of rye whiskey is evident.
