Light mahogany color. Inviting, tropical, yeasty aromas and flavors of spiced raisin bread and cedar, caramelized papaya and stewed peach, starfruit, and molasses with a velvety, crisp, fruity full body and a tingling, involved, long finish displaying shades of dried fruit melange, mixed nut bar and root beer, preserved hibiscus, and allspice and mixed peppercorns finish. A lovable sherry-finished whisky complete with all the caramelly, fruity fix-ins.

The Highlands consist of the portion of Scotland north of a line from Dundee on the North Sea coast in the east to Greenock on the Irish Sea in the west. Highland malt whiskies cover a broad spectrum of styles. They are generally aromatic, smooth and medium bodied, with palates that range from lushly complex to floral delicacy. The subregions of the Highlands include Speyside; the North, East and West Highlands.
