Golden amber color. Aromas and flavors of orange marmalade, clove-spiced apples, toffee, and hints of tiramisu with a velvety, vibrant, dry light-to-medium body and an even, layered, medium-long finish with accents of pineapple, limestone, black pepper, star anise, and turmeric. A spicy, well-refined Wheat Whiskey with great minerality and a smooth-sipping texture.
