Bright gold color. Sweet aromas of red licorice, marmalade, cilantro, and aniseed with a satiny, vibrant, dryish medium body and a tingling, elegant, very long multigrain toast with honey, spiced butter, and soft pretzel finish. A fruity and herbaceous play on the American Single Malt with a bold and grain-forward center; great flavor integration and lots of appeal to Irish Whisky drinkers.
