Tasting notes
Taster   Chris Goodrum
Nose: Seriously mature and spicy with plenty of herbal dried grainy fruit and soft oak. Beautifully crisp and evocatively spicy with a light rum-like demeanour and hints of toasted vanilla and burnt wood.
Palate: A crisp and grainy start leads into liquorice, molasses and rummy dried fruit. Multi-layered and gorgeous, with a touch of silky vanilla and toasty oak on the middle.

Comment: A lovely, fruity number. I’d have a dram for sur
