Member Ratings and Notes
Mike
 
The nose is coconut and cane sugar, pretty sweet.  The palate goes a different direction, the wood makes it grassy and a little bitter.  Water takes some of the bitterness away.  Then it turns a little spicy, tofu bacon. The finish is all tofu bacon.  Not bad.

The nose is weak, but the flavor makes up for it.  Cherry pie, and a sweet one at that.  Almost a B+, except for the nose, and quite a bit more fun than the Signatory Benrinnes.

Fruits and sweet iced tea with a bite.  Really nice clean lines and a great light taste.
