Amber color. Aromas and flavors of toast with orange marmalade, green olive, snicker bar, salted pecans, honey, and lemon verbena with a round, vibrant, dry medium-to-full body and a warming, very complex, very long finish with touches of leather, nut-studded nougat, tangerine, and spiced banana cake finish. A twisting, turning Single Malt Whisky that sings on the palate; an excellent, excellent dram.
