The nose is mostly bananas with some alcohol notes. It seems odd to find this in a 24 year old whiskey, but the palate opens with new make notes, then some banana, though it's a more subtle banana note than on the nose. It's very sweet and has a very short finish. There's just not that much to this one.

n:  Coconut cake

 

p:  Just as the nose suggests.  Sugar, lemon cake, and coconut.  It's a little thin but an easy sipper.

 

B-/B

Faint yellow. Lighty musty vanilla notes. Nose is mostly flat and straightforward. Off-putting on the tongue. Grain is there, not a lot going on. Lingers. C+ [2/23/15] 
Ries
 

n: light coconut water, banana cream pie. Still sharp on the nose (alcohol).

 

t: initial reactions was "weird"; coconut and white frosting. Green banana with whipped cream in the middle. Not much else to find, surprisingly youthful - must've been a really tired cask.  [C/C+]
