"The nose is sweet with gentle fruit notes (think caramelized banana and orange peel). Moderately full body, rum notes come through more on the finish. Mild spices, some vanilla. Good little alcohol bite being that its 86 proof which helps the sweet factor from getting out of hand. This is a nice bridge between the whiskey and rum worlds; almost like a cocktail in itself. Good value and a fun release."
