Deep amber color. Fruity aromas and flavors of chestnut honeyed dried fruits, leather, and malted chocolate nuts with a supple, fruity medium-to-full body and a warming, complex, long finish with nuances of creme brulee, sweet spices, pepper, and cedar finish. A flavor-packed blended whiskies with a lot of spice and fruit that bodes well for cocktails.
