Nosing: Apple Peach Banana Malt Sweet Floral Oak

Taste: Fruit Sweet Lemon Sherry

Finish: Medium to Long

Comment: Very fragrant nose that jumps out of the glass. Lots of ripe fruit notes with the oak and sandalwood in the background. The sweet fruit carries into the palate and malt begins to develop towards the back. Overall a very good, well balanced whiskey. My only issue is that it's a tad overpriced at $85.
