Clear, Bright golden orange.
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.
Sweet honeyed, overripe banana and whiskey palate which belies its 35% alcohol strength. Vanilla, caramel and cherry flavours with light herbal spice.
Sweet, tropical fruity finish with bitter chocolate notes and which is saved from being cloying by peppery spice of the whiskey.
Reminiscent of old-school Southern Comfort.
