Nosing: FruitPearVanillaOak
Fruity with pears, some vanilla oakiness. I don't get much of the coconut, but there is a flinty mineral character to it as well.

Taste: SweetVanillaFruitPepper
Fruity arrival, sweet, but not overly. Vanilla oakiness, develops into a peppery spiciness.

Finish: OakFruitSpices
Medium length with good intensity, lots of spicy oak and retains a good deal of fruitiness.

Comment:
I picked this up on offer at the supermarket, its definitely a good value proposition as the quality is definitely there. I'm not the biggest fan of the nose, and it lacks a bit of complexity, but there are definitely some things to like.

Nosing: TOP VanillaTropical FruitCoconutOak MID VanillaPearGrapefruitSherry BASE PearOak

Taste: VanillaSpicesOilOak

Finish: SherryOakPeat SmokePepper

Comment: Light Gold in colour, with large thick fast running legs. Nose starts with a vanilla and tropical fruit top note with hints of coconut, mid layer includes an addition of pear and grapefruit and the base nose layer includes more pear and oak. Taste starts with a fruity note, but then is surprisingly spicy, a hint of oil, oak for sure and vanilla is also present. The finish is sherry, oak, peat smoke and peppery spiciness. 8.5 out of 10

Comment: Picks up the flavors of the bourbon barrels. Most definitely the sweetness. A smooth, somewhat sweet and enjoyable dram that's not terribly complex, but a very good drink for the price (USD 40).
