Pale gold color. Aromas of banana chips, shaved chocolate, graham cracker, and honeysuckle with a silky, crisp, dry light body and a warming, interesting, medium-length honey biscuit, lemon curd, yuzu-ginger marmalade, clove, and turmeric finish. A high octane Speyside Malt with a piquant, almost aperitif style; mix with club soda for a sophisticated palate-opener.
