Aroma: Fruity, Banana, Vanilla, Cedar, Oak

Taste: Fresh fruit followed by bitterness into the finish

Finish: Smooth with lingering vanilla.

Comment: A quality single malt with an extremely pleasant aroma and smooth finish. Personally, I'm not a huge fan of the taste, as I prefer sherry cask maturation. If you are a fan of ex-bourbon cask maturation, this is a must have. I recommend adding a half teaspoon of water for optimal flavor.
