Tasting notes
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Sour fruit. Big spices. Floral. Hyacinth, narcissus. Opens on exotic fruit. Pomegranate,candied pineapple.Rich like an ol d dark rum.Complex and enticing
Palate: The same rum character. Sweet, sensual. Opulent.Beautiful texture.
Finish: Long,sweet and exotic.
Comment: What a strange whisky.Tastes more like a rum from Guyana than a whisky. A bourbon coming from the Carribean?
8.0
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: High lactone notes and a sweetly direct character.Becomes spicy with cassia,sandalwood,even a hint ofpatchouli. Hey man,it's a hippy whisky.
Palate: Chocolate is very far forward here then fresh mint.Becomes dry and grippy, black cherry damson and tannin.
Finish: Stewed builder's tea and black fruits.
Comment: Attractive nose,but the grip obliterates any charm.
