Aged: 9 months Batch: Bottle 52 Proof 90 Alcohol 45% On the nose: The malt is very strong on the nose. Perfect for the beer drinker that you are converting over to a whiskey drinker. Taste: This is by far one of my favorite malted whiskeys. If you are a woman who enjoys beer you will love this whiskey. Even though it tastes smooth in the beginning it still have a mild peppery finish that a whiskey should possess. You will also taste notes of chocolate that are very pronounced and a smoky flavor that is quite tasty. Absolutely delicious. Cheers!
