I can't believe this is a whisky. A(decent) rum yes,but where is the grain?
Single Coffey Malt, 12 Years Old
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Starts with a big alcohol punch. After a few seconds,you are taken on the rum road ! And more precisely on the 'rhum grand arôme.' Medicinal. Clove oil,cardamom. Caramel, vanilla.
Palate: Not as sweet as the nose promised it to be. Oak prevails. A sharp spirit bite. But the Guyana rum Demerara profile cannot be denied.
Finish: Long,spicy,with a green stalk note.
Comment: I can't believe this is a whisky. A(decent) rum yes,but where is the grain?
Nose: It's a rum,isn't it? Sweet oak,liquorice, anise/fennel.Then in time,rosemary, coconut and peach. Liquorous.
Palate: Barley sugar melting in the mouth, then mix of sweet nut and guava. Lingering and smooth. Yup,a rum.
Comment: Layers of seductive soft fruitiness. A malt made in a Coffey still? Why the hell not!
