Golden amber color. Attractive aromas and flavors of nougat, vanilla maple fudge, chocolate cherry and apricot, and hint of cola with a silky, vibrant, medium body and a warming, complex, long finish with notes of browns spices, praline, caramelized stone fruits, and pepper and limestone finish. A wonderfully smooth, flavorful, and masterfully blended scotch whisky that is sure to please.

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.
