Tasting notes by Caroline Roddis (The Whisky Exchange)
Nose: Vanilla, banana milkshake, Farley's rusks, custard creams, kiwi, apple and mellow citrus. The bourbon influence is immediate obvious.
Palate: Soft, with the banana, vanilla, citrus and apple notes joined by white chocolate, peach and hints of spice. Water emphasises oak and cereal notes.
Finish: Short and sweet.
