Peggy Noe Stevens

Nose: Butterscotch, candied dates, green apple, and cotton candy. Caraway seed and mild pepper. Vanilla icing and slivered almond.

Palate: Honey rich and full bodied with coatings of caramel and ginger. Milk chocolate builds with some wood sugar.

Finish: Deliciously long and keeps you thinking about vanilla and wood sugar. Heightened ginger is the grand finale.

Comments: Wakes up your palate with that punch of ginger in an inviting and most congenial way.



Susan Reigler

Nose: Wisps of wood smoke float out of the glass with toasted marshmallow, baked Golden Delicious apple and allspice for an appealing, complex nose.

Palate: Rich toffee shot through with milk chocolate and topped with crumbled, sugar-coated almonds. Subtle citrus and nutmeg.

Finish: Toffee and fruit are joined by oak as the long finish, helped along by a rich mouthfeel, gradually rolls out.

Comments: A classic whiskey to enjoy fireside with a good book.
