This whisky has an interesting pedigree. It’s made with a stout beer recipe instead of the much lighter distiller’s been recipes used at most distilleries, and the result is a whisky with a light and aromatic nose of straw, ginger, caramel syrup, vanilla, and hints of chocolate. The chocolate really comes out on the palate, with a thick, rich mouthfeel and additional notes of hot fudge syrup, ginger, and vanilla. Those same notes last through the finish with a nice consistency and good length. An interesting change of pace. (March, 2013)
