Extremely bright and sweet, with very little ethanol. Aromas wafting off of the glass include heavy vanilla (that’s the oak), ripe fruits, honey, caramel, and a slight maltiness. The sweetness is similar to rock candy, with accompanying citrus, a touch of caramel, and a strange herb note that I can’t quite place. Not extremely complex, but incredibly enjoyable. Fairly short, and the only aspect of this whisky that has even a twinge of disappointment in it. Just some lingering sweetness, spice and a touch of heat.
