Taster   Arthur Motley
Nose: Crab apple and redcurrant jelly. A bourbony, grain-like character is more evident. A little cloying after a time, like the sweetness of jam cooking.
Palate: Lots of vanilla, filled with new sawn oak.
Finish: That vanilla oozes back like a half-sucked caramel chew.
Comment: A simple but satisfying whiskey that almost tricked me into thinking it was a bourbon at times. Good stuff for its age too.
7.8
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: A wildly spiced nose: caraway, turmeric, dried mint (freshly made mint sauce), banana chips, plain wood. Cereal. Bourbon like.
Palate: Light. The mintiness carries through. Some hard youth battling against sweetness from the oak. Cinnamon balls.
Finish: Short.
Comment: The best Greenore yet. Worth a look.
