"The aroma brings a mix of dried & fresh white and red fruits--think peaches, cherries, apricots. The medium body brings the barley malt flavors in as well as nutty flavors. Black Art 6.1 finishes on the spicy side with a hint of char smoke as well. There's an intrigue to the dram that keeps you returning back again to discern the aromas and flavors and before you know it, you're ready for a refill. "
