I decided to pick this bottle up as an easy, at-home dram on a total impulse. Pretty pleased with this!

Nose: This nose is soft, and good. Vanilla, cream, heather, with some frutiness... like banana and some light orchard undertones, like green apple. Pleasant.

Palate: Wow, there it is! Some fire, more cream, really pops on the tongue! I didn't expect that big of a personality. More cream, with honey, some more banana and apple, and it slips away to some smoldering smoke on the back. I like it!

Finish: Nice long finish, with some delightful spiciness that plays off the cream and fruit in an awesome way. This is pretty dang good. Lingering butterscotch.

Burp Banana cream! (You're welcome, Bliss.)

All in all, definitely a worthy bottle to have in the cabinet.

Hahahagah! I've clearly have made drinking less classy by introducing the burp method! For a second I thought you called it the "Meaty banana"

Haha the best part is that it was an accident. A burp came up and hit me with flavor, and then I laughed and remembered that you have used the burp method in a couple reviews. So I just HAD to include it.
