Tasting notes
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Oaky. Antique shop, cigar box. A meaty note, dark chocolate. A hint of geranium. Getting more floral and sweeter on time. Cloved orange.
Palate: Sweet at start then drying out on a very spicy kick. Bitter orange marmalade. Ginger. Oak is well integrated.
Finish: Dry, spicy and fruity. Cider apple.
Comment: The oaky start leads way to a cheerful fruity and floral profile. Marked by the sherry but not on the dark (woody) side. Avoid water.
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: A lurid colour reminiscent of Lucozade. Masses of coconut: cream; dessicated; flesh; oil; bounty bars. Hot gorse. Underneath there's lime, banana split and chocolate.
Palate: Slick and sweet. Seems as if this thick veneer of sweet oak is smothering the spirit.
Finish: Guess? Yup. Coconut.
Comment: I was expecting the atypicality to be the world's first Malibu finish, but no...maybe it is just atypical for Welsh whisky.
