This is yet another MGP sourced product. Blend of 11 and 18yr old whiskeys finished in Armagnac, Sherry and Cognac casks.
Sweet cinnamon, vanilla, fig and date fruit. Very sweet honey, cinnabon icing, clove and faint tobacco.
Medium thickness, no heat. Faint oakiness, pepper, tobacco and clove are very prominent. Very little fruit here, but there is noticeable vanilla character also.
Medium, oaky, spicy pepper, lots of oaky bitterness.
I think in trying to make a blend to pair with a cigar, they ended up with a blend that tastes like a cigar, but not in an especially positive way. It's too oaky, bitter and tannic for my tastes to really proclaim its greatness but it is a fairly solid sourced MGP cask. Not terrible, also not great.
