Review and Tasting

Sampled on 15/08/2011

Appearance

Clear, Bright golden orange.

Aroma

An aromatic, sweet smelling nose with overripe pineapple/overripe banana/tropical fruit confectionary, vanilla, slightly herbal aromas with a faint note of the whiskey base.

Taste

Sweet honeyed, overripe banana and whiskey palate which belies its 35% alcohol strength. Vanilla, caramel and cherry flavours with light herbal spice.

Aftertaste

Sweet, tropical fruity finish with bitter chocolate notes and which is saved from being cloying by peppery spice of the whiskey.

Overall

Reminiscent of old-school Southern Comfort.
