COLOR
Light cabinet wood, honey, mango iced-tea or pale straw.  It's like having soft whispering tea outside in the sun for breakfast.
NOSE
A distinct sweet nose with hints of honey, vanilla, butter, heavy cream, citrus, oak, cereal, and leather.
FLAVOR
The beautifully crafted complex nose translates into a deeply rich flavor with honey, vanilla, butter, cream, spices, oak, citrus, nuts, and salt.
FINISH
The nicely tuned finish begins full bodied.  Over this long haul, various flavor elements drop off until only honey, cream, and salt linger on.
COMMENTS
A sophisticated sweet and complex dram.  This is the type of dram that will appeal to both beginners and hard-cord peat-oriented afficiondos.
