Bright golden amber color. Aromas and flavors of pistachio nougat, white toffee, and perfumed spices with a satiny, lively, fruity medium-to-full body and a tingling, complex, long finish imparting notes of creme brulee, mocha pecan fudge, minerals, and smoked peppercorns finish. A superbly poised and flavor packed highland malt with a deft touch of smoke.
