Gold color. Aromas of roasted figs, dates, crumpets, and honey-drizzled apples with a supple, crisp, dryish light-to-medium body and a smooth, interesting, medium-length grilled plantain, minerals, and hints of white flowers finish. A delicately peated American Single Malt with a mellow personality.
