Nose: High lactone notes and a sweetly direct character.Becomes spicy with cassia,sandalwood,even a hint of\rpatchouli. Hey man,it's a hippy whisky.

Finish: Stewed builder's tea and black fruits.
Comment: Attractive nose,but the grip obliterates any charm.
Nose: Sour fruit. Big spices. Floral. Hyacinth, narcissus. Opens on exotic fruit. Pomegranate,candied pineapple.\rRich like an ol d dark rum.Complex and enticing
Palate: The same rum character. Sweet, sensual. Opulent.Beautiful texture.
Finish: Long,sweet and exotic.
Comment: What a strange whisky.\rTastes more like a rum from Guyana than a whisky. A bourbon coming from the Carribean?
