Brilliant golden amber color. Inviting aromas and flavors of graham cracker, key lime custard, honeycomb and gardenia, and apricot jelly and clementine with a round, lively, fruity medium-to-full body and a peppery, massive, very long finish imparting accents of candied figs and dates with saffron and cumin, white chocolate and kaffir lime leaf, galangal and oatmeal cookie, and sweet cigar wrapper and bubblegum taffy and lemon pepper finish. A multifaceted bright and complex whiskey made with finesse and soul.

The Highlands consist of the portion of Scotland north of a line from Dundee on the North Sea coast in the east to Greenock on the Irish Sea in the west. Highland malt whiskies cover a broad spectrum of styles. They are generally aromatic, smooth and medium bodied, with palates that range from lushly complex to floral delicacy. The subregions of the Highlands include Speyside; the North, East and West Highlands.
