Soaked in French oak port casks, the nose is fruity and chocolaty. The palate is a bit floral, peppper, semi sweet red wine. The finish is a big fruit bomb, plums, dark berries, finishes fast. Prohibition against distilling in the region was just lifted in the 1990’s. As a result, this is a new distillery started in 1994, I would expect some great expressions from this region soon. My current reservation here is cost to quality. This is a decent dram that is worth trying, but owning at $140 plus….I’m not so sure.
