Medium golden amber color. Toasty aromas and flavors of buttery toasted fig bread and buttery roasted cashews with a supple, soft, dryish medium-to-full body and a tingling, interesting, medium-length finish that presents impressions of caramel buttercream, maple toffee, and minerals finish. An attractive nutty, buttery blend with great flavor and an instant appeal.

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.
