Glass

Great viscosity. Thick oily legs coated the Glencairn.

Nose

Caramelized banana, Cinnabon, stewed cherries, fresh banana bread with walnuts.

Taste

Creamy, tart cherries full on the front palate. Breaks into toasted cinnamon and baking spices on the top of the palate.

Finish

The finish doesn’t beat you over the head but it does last. It’s banana bread and baking spice like a bake sale in your mouth.

Verdict – Silver 89 out of 100 Points
