COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
First came a toasted smug called Yin followed by a hoppy fella called Yang. Let me introduce you to Auld Yin a wrinkly more experienced take on youngster Yin. 9 months in the company of an insightful, complex whiskey cask made a pretty interesting spin on this imperial tajii taste adventure. Aye!

Beautiful stuff! Perfectly balanced taste, intense but very pleasant sweet chocolate, caramel and whisky aroma. Very mellow alcohol overtone. Beautiful stuff indeed.
