Dark copper color. Aromas of fresh baked croissant, pumpernickel, and chestnut with a round, vibrant, fruity medium-full body and a tingling, complex, very long cherry preserves, grilled pear, herb butter, toasted marshmallow, saddle soap, chocolate-hazelnut spread, and fresh mint finish. A spectacularly complex and dense American Single Malt Whiskey that offers incredibly well-integrated flavors and a deliciously satisfying finish; buy this.
