Golden amber color. Aromas and flavors of caramel-drizzled peanuts, milk chocolate, buttered popcorn, hoisin sauce, and toffee-studded cookies with a satiny, vibrant, dryish medium-to-full body and a smooth, delightful, medium-long finish that presents impressions of salted caramel and whipped cream. A nutty, very Bourbon-like Wheat Whiskey that is a pleasure to sip and share.
