Bright golden amber color. Nutty, grainy aromas and flavors of butter sautéed almonds, leather and wet clay, dried fruits and ancient grains, and chocolate caramel bar with a supple, bright, fruity medium body and a tingling, engaging, medium-length peach tea, cedar mulch, and gravel finish. A nicely sherried and delicate Speyside malt.
