  • Excerpt: Adding water opens up touches of citrus fruits and dried flowers. The finish is very long, aromatic, and thick with lingering spices, butterscotch, toasted oak and a touch of grilled fruits.

  • Excerpt: I don’t know any other distillery that’s put out something this young, this fast, and had it taste nearly this good. It’s a monumental achievement and I don’t want to undercut that fact at all.

  • Excerpt: It's complex and unique. While it doesn't taste like an onion, I would say it is an ogre of a whiskey. Don't just dismiss it the first time around.

  • Excerpt: A bit of candied ginger and cinnamon arrive on the finish with a lingering note of poached pears. Delightful stuff, if a bit brash and youthful.

  • Excerpt: As time passes, whisky starts to offer you spicy notes from virgin oak on the nose and on the palate. The green notes also take you to a waterfront location with fresh air and lots of waves hitting the promenade!
