"The aroma is full of fruits like apple, apricots, and orange peel along with honey. The palate is somewhat chewy this lots of wood influence and baking spices. More fruit is here, but also a nutty, toasted malt flavor as well. Light smoke is present throughout and the finish is of moderate length. A solid dram and a lovely way to end the evening. "
