Tasting Notes

  • Tasting notes by Billy Abbott, The Whisky Exchange

    Nose: Crunchy caramel at first, with a touch of toffee sauce. Then fruity flavours emerge: green and roasted bananas, with hints of sharp red berries hiding behind. Rich lardy cake notes build – dark sugar, raisins and layers of buttery, enriched dough. Right at the back sit notes of barrel char and polished oak.

    Palate: Butterscotch and toffee begin, with intensely fruity brown sugar notes and estery bananas following – ripe, overripe, roasted and foam banana sweets. Darker notes of liquorice and fruity dark chocolate lie underneath, with mint and thick, grainy caramelised sugar.

    Finish: Toffee-filled chocolate and clove fade to leave butterscotch and bananas.

    Comment: Rich and sweet, but never cloying. Complex and well-balanced with no spikiness, and surprisingly easy-drinking despite its high-strength.

  • Tasting notes from the producer

    Nose: Intense, with a classic Bajan profile of vanilla and dried fruits with a touch more smoke and spice due to the high ABV.

    Palate: Rich, deep notes of oak and spice at first, followed by some vanilla and dark chocolate and touches of baked banana. Warming. With water a little less oaky spice and more dried fruits. Entices you back to the glass for another sip.
