Excerpt: This is the pick of the bunch, the whisky equivalent of Fountains of Wayne; an effervescent dessert whisky, which from the first aroma to the final finish is a consistent mix of vanilla, coconut, and overripe banana, sprinkled with icing sugar and cinnamon.
Sweet caramel, oak, pepper, apple, pear. Hot, oaky and spicy.
Medium length, hot peppers and oaky. Faint fruitiness and a lot of vanilla character here.
This was my favorite of the three solist that I've had so far but it's still not outstanding whiskey. There's an odd balance between the finish and the base spirit but I do enjoy being able to actually taste the base spirit here (port and sherry just absolutely dominated the base spirit). This is just fine, but I don't think Ill be jumping through the hoops required to get my paws on this here in the States.
