Dusty light gold color. Green aromas and flavors of morning dew on a meadow, spiced peach and plum, kidd leather and lipstick, and floral honey butter with a silky, crisp, fruity medium body and a tingling, complex, medium-long peat, minerals, spice, and cigar tobacco finish. A spry, scintillating malt whisky with a delicate dash of peat.
