Distilled and aged in Indiana, it's herbal, floral, and slightly fruity, with a hint of cherry syrup. Resounding dried apricot and peach cobbler are followed by concentrated caramel and vanilla, creating a very pleasing and easy-drinking whiskey. Although not complex nor with a strong finish, it's perfectly balanced by intense notes. Perfect for cocktails or table whiskey.
