Distillery Tasting Notes

Made by Heaven Hill Distilleries, Inc. ~ Heaven Hill Distillery

COLOR: Roasted pecans. AROMA: Lots of toasted oak with rich caramel. TASTE: Big, rich, and complex. Delightful spice and pepper notes fade to milk chocolate with just a hint of smoke. FINISH: Complexity continues. Nicely warming, with lingering chocolate and baking spices. Aromas and flavors of pekoe tea, new leather, cinnamon, cedar, and jasmine. Warm and comforting notes of peach preserves and brown sugar erupt with a chipotle spice. Deeply layered and profound.
