Clear, pale golden amber.
Noticeably whiskey influenced, nubuck leathery slightly floral nose of stewed peaches, citrus and vanilla.
Just enough sugar to tame the spirit without being overly sweet. Much rounder and more complex than regular Southern Comfort - fruity notes sit well with the strength and flavour of the whiskey but are more reminiscent of boiled sweet fruit flavours than fresh fruit. Think 'peach' rather than 'pear' drop-flavoured bourbon.
Boiled sweets and leather with peppery, cinnamon spirity spice.
Closure: Screw / Stelvin cap
