Tasting notes
Taster   Joel Harrison
Nose: Vanilla, bergamot peel, some chamomile, lily of the valley and parma violet.
Palate: A little gluey, with the UPV notes hitting the palate first but it develops into green apple, fresh asparagus and foam banana penny sweets.
Finish: Mr Whippy Ice Cream and some cinnamon spices.
Comment: Despite being quaffable, this seems like a work in progress, which needsa little more time in the cask to allow the spirit to balance out a touch more.
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Sweet, rich Demerara aromas. So reminiscent of a Jamaican rum.
Palate: Very sweet and thick. Cloying. The same Demerara character. With Vanilla. Milk chocolate. A slight cardboard note. Drying on soft spices.
Finish: Sweet, quickly fading. Quite sugary.
Comment: Is that a whisky? Hard to imagine. If so, a whisky disguised in rum attire.
