Tasting notes
Taster   Chris Goodrum
Nose: A thick, saturated and floral nose. A real riot of honey, barley, chunky oak, toffee and violets. Some crisp, herbal grain balances beautifully.
Palate: Crisper and grainier, with an almost mentholated freshness. Toffeed oak sits pliantly beneath. Straightforward but pleasantly deep with honey and coffee.
Finish: Long but very oaky. The toffee has become quite oily and some bitter, coffeed tannins make it a little drying.
Comment: I certainly wasn’t expecting the oak fest on the finish! Not exactly subtle but entertaining nevertheless.
Taster   Joel Harrison
Nose: Battered sweetbreads, butterscotch and cool whip. Toffee too.
Palate: Sweet and slightly bitter. An odd combination. Red apple pie and rum drizzled with reduced honey.
Finish: Sweetness. Sweetness. Sweetness.
Comment: Is this a rum? Not a huge deal of complexity, balance or finesse, but packed full of sweet flavours.
