Tasting notes
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Oaky. Quite dark too. Sherry influence. Prune juice. Strong coffee. Less spirity than the younger ones. But the rum influence is still there.
Palate: Sweet, smooth. Sugar prevails. Coffee liquor. Crushed walnuts. Demerara again.
Finish: Short and quickly vanishing. A trace of oak.
Comment: More smooth than the previous ones. But I still can't find if it's whisky there.
7.5
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Soft and sweet. Gives the illusion of age, but is simply sweeter and over extracted. Figgy, stewed tea, pomegranate syrup, some rye/chicory notes.
Palate: Not as grippy as nose suggests. Camp coffee (undiluted), toffee, prune juice, molasses. Thick.
Finish: Bitter. Liquorice, claggy.
Comment: This is confected rubbish.
