Amber color. Aromas and flavors of iodine, soft pretzel, smoked seaweed, soft white bread, pear, and smoked meats with a satiny, crisp, dryish light-to-medium body and a warming, captivating, medium-length finish that shows touches of white chocolate, coriander, peppercorns, and ash finish. A successful peated American Single Malt with lots of flavors to unpack.
