Member Ratings and Notes
Adam
 
Nose of fruits, notably real bananas.  The taste is an odd one.  Light, but with peculiar dancing and fleeting notes of varied real and artificial fruit flavors.  In the finish, new flavors emerge not yet seen.  This whisky is at first a discovery... then a disaster.  It can't sustain... after a few sips, soap and general blecchh come to the forefront and stay there.  Swing and a miss.

N: Wet socks, sour ripe fruit, orange peel.
P: Unexpectedly organic, citrus infused sugar.
F: Mouth coating, oily, a floral note emerges...or is it soap?  Yes, soap, ruining the whole thing.  Soap!!
