Single MaltDistilled in pot stills from 100% malted barley, produced at one distillery, aged in barrels; if Scotch or Irish, must be aged for at least three years.
"Traditional Highland aromas come through bright and clear along with some surprises: honey, tropical fruits, and maybe even some savory notes of smoked meat. The palate shows pineapple crème brûlée, mature wood spice, and some secondary flavors of malted vanilla milkshake. The finish is long and satisfying. "
