WE 91 Pts - According to Wine Enthusiast - Relatively light and delicate, this light-gold whisky might serve as an apéritif or cocktail mixer. Look for a fresh, grassy scent and fleeting, mouthwatering notes of vanilla, tropical fruit and a brief hint of saline. A whiff of smoke breezes by on the finish, dispersing quickly.

SIA (pronounced “SEE-a”) is a new and exciting spirit for your modern palate. A blend of Speyside, Highland and Islay malt and grain whiskies, SIA received a 91 points from Wine Enthusiast and an “Outstanding” rating from Whisky Advocate Magazine. SIA makes a perfect gift to new and experienced whisky enthusiasts alike.
The striking amber color of clover honey, SIA awakens the nose with citrus and spice and opens the palate with a hint of smoky vanilla. The finish is long, smooth and refreshing with hints of hazelnut and toffee.
The story of SIA is what makes it especially unique, crowd-funded two-years ago on Kickstarter.com by a Hispanic woman in California named Carin Luna-Ostaseski, after years of searching for a way to introduce her friends to Scotch whisky and challenge the idea that scotch is "your grandfather's drink". Mission accomplished.
