Press & Reviews

Whisky Advocate
"Cotton candy, cherry-flavored taffy, ripening strawberries, and sugar syrup wrap this in sweet aromas. The aromas carry through to the palate, where there's strawberry, more cherry, and red apple, initially with some mouth-drawing oaky notes, until a bigger, juicy candy theme bursts out, with red Life Savers, cherry Popsicle, and background spice. Soft red fruits and spice to finish; this is a sweet, soothing, slow sipper of a rice whisky."
