Rich and brilliant - see-through amber, but with a flame orange glint that tells of the warmth to come. Full, yet delicate; well-rounded; possessing a distinctive caramel aroma of the charred oak with a hint of vanilla; pleasant and inviting. Rich in flavor, yet soft on the palate. A subtle level of sweetness that reflects the marriage of grain and oak. Distinctive and complex, yet possess the balance found in a well crafted malt or cognac.
