Pale golden amber color. Grainy, creamy aromas and flavors of warm cereal with syrup, caramelized nuts, and baklava with a silky, bright, fruity medium body and a polished, captivating, breezy finish that exhibits impressions of walnut torte, whipped cream, and pepper finish. A very tasty, light and creamy sipper that is sure to please.

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.
