Tasting notes
Taster   Chris Goodrum
Nose: Coffeed with almost pot still spicy notes. Sherried dried fruit with camphor and leafy herbs. Edgy and earthy with developing grain whisky-like dried fruit and cocoa powder.
Palate: Sweetish, juicy dried fruit with hints of chamomile and juniper. Crisper on the middle as the buzzy grains arrive, but the dried fruit and vanilla counterbalance.
Finish: Good length with the vanilla accented dried fruit lingering. Lightly coffeed, herbal and chocolate powder after-taste
Comment: Tasted blind you could easily mistake this for a Scottish grain whisky
Taster   Joel Harrison
Nose: The nose is more akin to something like rum or a VS Armagnac. Agricultural would be the term to use here. A hint of Grappa too and wildflowers.
Palate: Thin, red apple juice, lots of over-sweet tea and a hint of spice.
Finish: The sweetness keeps on pushing this forward.
Comment: The style seems confused.
