Brilliant amber with a pink color. Interesting, roasted, oaky aromas and flavors of dark roasted nuts, chocolate coconut macaroon, dried apricot, figs and dates, and sandalwood and waxy leather with a silky, bright, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a warming, engaging, long finish with accents of mocha, maple nut fudge, raisin scone, and minerals and spice finish. A fun wood-finished highland with a distinctive color and character.

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.
