Tasting Notes:

(Tasted from a sample bottle, Not commercially availed in CA yet)
Sweet nose with a flowery note of hops and a fortified-wine-like sweetness.
This is pretty intriguing. There is a layer of smokiness on the palate, along with a character of sweet malt, and some floral and vegetal notes of hops.
As it finishes the whiskey is a play between hops and roasted barley. Really tastes as if I just drank a sip of imperial stout.
Very interesting and well worth seeking out!
