A hyped release in the current hottest trend: whiskey anyone can palate.
Vanilla, melons and vine fruit: cantaloupe, watermelon, honeydew, etc. It's fruity, aromatic and light all around. No ethanol whatsoever
The mouth feel is very thin, and its incredibly gentle. There's more vanilla, some sugary sweet and then a blast of more fruits. I hate the word smooth, but there's no denying it. This is just smooth. Not a whole ton going on here. Its sweet, thin and unoffensive.
Short, mild and fruity. There's a lot of butterscotch in this one, much like some Nikka I used to have a bottle of.
This is easily a one note dram. Its sweet, has no ethanol notes and smooooooooooth which explains why its all the range among many newcomers who want to start with the hottest thing.
