Brilliant golden amber color. Bright, buttery, roasted aromas and flavors of chocolate roasted nuts, toasted pretzel roll, and toasted grain with a silky, soft, dry-yet-fruity light-to-medium body and a warming, engaging, medium-length mocha custard, nut skins, peppery and brown spices, and limestone finish. A layered, well balanced and versatile Scotch whisky.

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.
