Light gold color. Interesting, fruity aromas and flavors of peach pasty and gum, vanilla toffee, floral lotion and clay, and pickled melon with a supple, vibrant, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a warming, refreshing, long toasted nuts and grain, vanilla cream, grass, and wet stones finish. A spirity Speyside with spry, earthy undertones.
