THERMONUCLEAR BANANA

This 10 year old malt whisky, distilled in a continuous still and bottled at 58.3%, spent 8 years in a bourbon barrel before finishing its maturation in a 2nd fill hogshead.

GOLD MEDAL WINNER AT THE INDEPENDENT BOTTLERS CHALLENGE 2018.

Flavour profile:  Juicy, oak & vanilla.

Outturn:  239 bottles.

Panel's tasting note:  "A luscious nose of pear flesh, pear drops, sugar cubes, spiced rum, dried mango, precious hardwoods, tobacco leaf and fudge. An immensely fruity dram with big notes of bananas flambeed in cognac, banana and vanilla milkshake, rancio and custard. Water reveals some remarkably tropical notes: oranges, kiwis, papaya and guava.

To taste, it is almost fat in texture. The wood spices nibble at the edges of the palate while the fruit sits plump and unmoving with buddha-esque tranquillity in the middle of the tongue. Pineapple syrup, coconut water, lime oil, fruit chews and star fruit. Reduction gives tonic water with lime, passion fruit sours, coconut milk and Thai basil. Previously in a bourbon barrel for 8 years."
