Sweet... first nose off of the glass. smooth, banana does come off too, heavily after the 2nd and 3rd nose. It's all pretty simple at this point. The palate develops nicely and moves to make a stronger statement. The slight sweetness stays, but quickly adds pepper/spice and mild, almost wafting wasabi experience through your head.... a euphoric light headed-ness. The finish is at first strong and bold, then tapers off to let you down easy. Still banana on the finish, more pepper/spicey goodness and a hint of soft hay? The experience is very good, combining a balance that is diverse, unexpected, but really does work well. This is one of those whiskies that you step back and say, "nice, I didn't expect those combinations, but I respect it enourmously."
