Tasting Notes

Nose

Over ripe banana and papaya star in this fruity production. Otherwise hot and slightly over oaked.

Palate

For all the alcoholic oomph, it's rather thin taste-wise, except for an exceptionally sweet maltiness which grows rather charmingly and is the high point.

Finish

Thinner still, despite a hint of cocoa. Still hot and off-balanced by the bullying oak.

Comment

This was probably a half decent dram 12 years ago.
