Golden amber color. Aromas and flavors of peach preserves, ripe plantain, chocolate-covered malted milk balls, heirloom apples, and arugula with a velvety, vibrant, dry medium-to-full body and a smooth, layered, long finish displaying notes of fennel, bay, dark chocolate, starfruit on yogurt, violet, and coriander. A complex and delighting melange of spice notes tickle the palate in this youthful but very robust American Single Malt.
