Tasting Notes

First Tasted at Meeting No. 25 in June 2014

Cy  •   •  4.0

Lot's of banana coming through on the nose followed by a serious solvent smell on the deep inhale. Little bit of toasted marshmallow. Very drinkable with water. Coming back after trying the other selection - this spirit smells like potpourri.

Matt G.  •   •  4.0

It smells great, like I'm putting my nose into a bag of banana chips! The first sip is hard on the mouth because of its high proof. I can't get much of a taste. Five drops of water open it up and tone down the strength.

Kevin  •   •  3.5

Sweet and sour up-front. Funky old wood on the back. That sweet and sour combo - like rice wine vinegar and duck sauce fighting back and forth - hangs on throughout the taste. With five drops of water, the rice wine element goes away - old funky wood flavor remains - this element reminds me of Japanese whiskey.

Elliott  •   •  3.5

I get the banana, but there's also the vanilla on the nose, followed by pure nose-singing alcohol. Spicy, aggressive, oily and fierce. Something off with this. With two drops of water, it has an added minty essence.

Steven  •   •  3.0

Tobacco and apple, as from pipe smoke, the sweetness from the malt if prominent, fantastic flavor for a ten-year scotch.

Gavin  •   •  3.0

Nose: the deeper you breathe, the hotter the burn. Floral perfume. Taste: sour apple, peppery burn. Lift your tongue and let it lie underneath, if you dare.
