p:  The usual coconutty nail polish from grain whisky is there although in lesser amounts.  The rest is just alkee-hol.


Why bother.


Retaste 9/8/15

p:  same as before.  Coconut manicure.




Reretaste 1/26/16


Meh, it's growing on me.



n: plywood, paper ash, and coconut cream pie. Powdered sugar and mostly white wax.

t: follows nose with heavy dose of whipped cream and heavy on powdered sugar. Chai tea and vanilla cream. Very sweet of coconut flakes in a sugar bomb. Interesting in its extreme one-note sweetness.  [C+]


n: scalded fruit (golden cherry and peaches) marmalade, nice full nose with tropical elements and meadow. Heavy on oats and coconut.

t: dried coconut and a blast of tropical fruit flavours rounded with warm oatmeal with a spash of vanilla soy milk. Hawaiian bread - this is a vacation on a tropical beach. Fun scotch to show what grain whisky can be.  [B/B-, 2015 release, I liked this better it seems] 

Nilla wafer, wet newspaper, young green plum. Warm malt and stale Cheerios.

Green apple skin, white grape juice, pomelo and lemonade. Astringent mid palate with subtle maltiness on the short finish.
