Color
Jonquiripe corn
Nose

Fresh and fruity. Pears and green apples. Pineapple? Some coconut.

Taste

There are those green fruits. Perhaps some bananas. Cereal grains. Spicy as you get into it.

Finish

Vanilla, and definite American oak. Spicy and medium long.

Comments

This is good whisky, but I'd expect more for the age and price. A bit boring.
