Bright golden amber color. Bright, inviting, floral aromas of dried blossoms, honeyed pancake, and caramelized nuts with a silky, crisp, off-dry medium body and a warming, interesting, long dried fruits, brown spices, smoky earth, and pepper finish. A great Scotch blend with a vibrant, well balanced fruit and grain flavor profile.

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.
