My Tasting Notes:
Colour: Dark amber
Nose: Deep-fried banana with honey, waxed leather boots, vanilla, candied ginger, polished wood, hints of pepper.
Palate: Banana, hints of pineapple and lemon, coconut, fudge, nutmeg and pepper .
Finish: Long, fruity and waxy.
Overall: A very good old-style bourbon cask whisky. There is quite a bit of wood, but the spirit still shines through.
Rating: 87/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$
