Nose: Caramel and honey with hints of orange peel and purple plumb.
Taste: The ol’ caramel standby is present but highlighted by a woody sweetness purportedly imparted by 12 years of aging in wine barrels. The finish left me with the very faint essence of anise.
Incredibly smooth and accessible with a slight rasp and smokiness on the back end, this malt/grain blend is a silky pleasure from first sip to last drop.
Distillery: Mars Whisky
