Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Grassy with a smoky echo. Very fruity. Poached pears. A sweaty touch.
Palate: Sweet but crisp sensation. Tinned peaches. Savoury taste with a tangy bite. Wasabi. Dry spicinesss which tickles the tongue.
Finish: Dry with a slight bitterness in the back.
Comment: I wonder what type of rum casks were used. I cannot find any hint to a finish here. Don't look for delicacy but fine if you look for a wake up call.
7.5
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Slightly abrasive. Some high estery/glue like notes. Immature. Water shows a smoky edge. Damp grass.
Palate: Better than the nose with a sweet centre. Orange zest. Rum takes charge from the middle onwards.
Finish: Smooths into tropical fruits.
Comment: The rum acting as a cover for what you suspect is a whisky which suffered from being in a tired cask.
