Golden amber color. Aromas of praline, roasted peanut, fine rosewater, dill, and caramel with a satiny, lively, fruity medium body and a peppery, long lemon curd, starfruit, pink peppercorns, and rye finish. A superb, one-of-a-kind single malt that will delight the fine bourbon drinker and entrance those accustomed to more classic single malt profiles.
