Light to medium amber with an orange hue. Strong nose of barley malt, vanilla, orange peel, cake batter, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Measured at first on the palate, then opens more with floral and lemon notes. Followed by a wave of nice heat intertwined with fig, wintergreen, and menthol notes. The peat is light, and the oak is present but balanced. Long finish of 60-90 seconds tails with some faint licorice flavors. Overall, a mellow whisky with some surprises when you peel back the layers. Tasted 10/21/2007.
