Brilliant gold color. Aromas and flavors of mocha gelato and chocolate cherry nut fudge with a satiny, vibrant, fruity medium-to-full body and a tingling, elegant, long finish that shows touches of rich brown and pickling spices, cola, caramelized nuts and fruits, and sandalwood incense finish. A rich, flavorful, and surprisingly smooth (given its proof) whiskey.
