Clear, very pale straw green-yellow tinge.
Banana milkshake-like. Obviously banana but not a banana smell you would associate with fresh bananas - ether ripe or overripe.
Like the nose, the clean palate is banana flavoured, but while pleasant is more a banana flavour we associate with confectionary or milkshakes. That said, this is probably the banana flavour most people would want and expect from a banana-flavoured vodka, and that flavour is well balanced with grainy, peppery vodka notes.
Peanut butter, confected banana with pepper and cinnamon spice.
