Tasting Notes

"Hints of copper coins to open things up, but there's also notes of sultanas and caramel. Plenty of vanilla and a whiff of mush banana too. Similar sweet notes appear on the palate, which is pretty creamy. Now there's a fair amount of wood spices too, though. An average entry-level whisky that's not completely balanced."
