Golden amber color. Aromas of almond nougat, heather, dried pear, halvah with dark chocolate, and musk with a velvety, crisp, fruity light-to-medium body and a smooth, amusing, medium-long spiced honey, Vienna cream pastry, and creme brulee finish. A rich and velvety scotch whiskey that will be a pleasure to drink in craft cocktails and simply neat.

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.
