Tasting Notes

"It has a distinctively tropical nose, full of flowers, fruit, toasted coconut, and oak. In the mouth, there's a lot of cereal grain and malt, along with oak spice, vanilla, papaya, banana, and a bit of sawdust. Orange bitters join in during a medium finish. Overall, a light and pleasant whiskey."
