Supposedly a blend of different aged distillate extending across 5 decades.
Malty honey, light pear and apple. Light vanilla cream. Mild brine.
Sweet apple and pear. Mild salt and peppery brine. Theres some honey, a good dose of sneaky smoke and a strong malty sweet finish.
Long but mild. Its well blended between the sweet, smokey and salty.
