TASTING NOTES FOR TRIPLE WOOD 12: Aged in three distinct woods for smoother taste:
Nose: Sweet and sherry-like, with dried fruits. Subtle woody notes and malty undertones.
Taste: Vanilla, honey, and spice. All mixed together for a rich, sweet flavour. Aged grains and peated malt add depth.
Finish: Long soothing and warm, a feeling you won’t want to rush.
