Color: Light bronze

Drank: Neat, in a glencairn.

Palate/Taste: Sweet cream, banana, vanilla, over-sweet sugar, caramel and a bit of oak

Finish: Medium warmth and length, pepper, leather, vanilla, and banana cream

Thoughts: Normally I can deal with sweet, I like some sweet rums like El Dorado, but this was sweet in a bad way. The dominate banana notes combined with sweetness and a wet mouthfeel combined for a less than average bourbon.

Score: 74 out of 100
