Gold color. Toasty, smoky aromas of gingerbread, almond butter, dried moss, soursop, grilled banana, and charred green coconuts with a satiny, bright, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a warming, elegant, medium-long smoked ancho chile, tamarind, mango, toasted pound cake, worn leather, and guava pastry finish. A highly distinctive single malt with loads of spicy, tropical character.
