Golden amber color. Aromas of honey-wheat crackers, caramel coated nougat, sesame, and leather with a silky, dry-yet-fruity light body and a tingling, swift maple and chocolate covered nuts finish. A solid blended Scotch for everyday highballs.

Blended Scotch whiskies require a mix of dozens of different malt whiskies to be combined with grain whisky in order to create the desired blend. The individual percentages of each malt whisky may be small, but each contributes its unique character to the blend. A blender will thus need to buy or produce a large amount of different malt whiskies in order to maintain the consistency of the blend. Thus, for a malt whisky distillery, the single malt may get all of the glory, but the blends ultimately pay the bills.
