Light gold color. Aromas of flamed lemon peel, banana nut bread, dried apple, black tea, and fig bar with a crisp, dryish medium body and an effortless, breezy heather finish. A robust blended Scotch whiskey with a grassy appeal and a hint of peat; a luncheon dram.

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.
