I tasted this dram blind and then got the reveal at a later time, so keep that in mind as you read through these notes.
Apples, pears, bread. Light salinity, light apple presence. Some toffee, light honey, light caramel. Seems scotchy.
Yep that's scotch. Sweet, lovely, lots of pepper. Cocoa, toffee, honey, some ash, there's a good deal of ethanol here. It's CS, but it's delicious. Apple crisp if I had to put a word to it.
Really long, complex and rich. Sweet toffee, sweet honey, apples, pears, figs, cherry. Light lactic funk.
This is really nice. Definitely cask strength scotch. Lots of great complexity and flavor here.
