Coppery gold in colour with a delightful, lightly peated nose. Initially sweetish on the palate, leading to a full-bodied honey rich taste. Long and dry finish with a lingering peaty final�. This award winning blend reflects the strength of the majestic 'imperial' stag depicted on the Scottish Leader brand. Much of its character comes from Deanston single malt, distilled on the banks of the River Teith at the 18th century Deanston distillery.
