The tasting flight is a good way to taste the whiskies. Enjoyed the cocktails enough to buy a bottle to try making them at home.

This well-appointed distillery provides a nice tasting. We sampled both featured whiskies plus 4 featured cocktails. Each of our party had a personal favorite but all were enjoyable.
