A honey-colored whisky with a spicy, smoky fragrance. The first sip is surprisingly sweet and honeyed, then the smoke gently creeps in like fog at dawn, softly surrounding the edges of the tongue.

Bright amber color. Intricate aromas of cocoa-dusted nuts and dried fruits, sweet spices, leather, cedar, and earth follow through on a round, silky entry to a dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body with excellent balance and depth. Finishes with a long, evolving and contemplative fade with notes of peat and mossy earth in harmony. A masterfully crafted blend.
