Distillery Tasting Notes

Made by Buzzard's Roost Whiskey

Nose: Caramel, dark chocolate, baking spices with a slight hint of perfectly seasoned oak. The se notes are supported by a complex array of earthy and estery notes, including orange peel, dark fruit, and aging tobacco. Palate: The palate gives way to an explosion of sweetness, and the finish is a perfect marriage of structure and heat. Palate: vanilla and coconut at the mid-palate. All the way through, the sweetness is accompanied by a rich blast of maraschino cherry and citrus worthy of the finest old fashioned. Finish: The cherry and citrus fade away to a lingering presentation of coconut and confection with some spice to keep it company along the way.
