Colour: Golden amber with hints of ruby red.

Finish: Warming and lingering. Sweet and very slightly spicy.
Amber in the glass, this Scotch has a rich butterscotch aroma, with touches of fresh apple and tropical fruit. Look for dried fruit and Sherry upfront on the palate, with additional notes of vanilla and oak that hang on through the exceedingly long and rounded finish. Though it's mouthcoating and oily, it's also roughed up a bit by the high proof, giving it a drying edge on the close.
