Nose
Sweet and intense with a fruity twinkle. Porridge, fresh hazelnuts. Marshmallow. Rum influence peeps through the creamy fruitiness.
Palate
Quite crisp though with a syrupy texture. Less mellow than expected. A spicy explosion at mid palate with a slight bitter edge.
Finish
Spicy, slightly dusty. Nutty aftertaste.
Comment
A cheery dram, opening up on the sunny side with definite rum colours on the nose. A dash of water sweetens the palate.

Nose
Sweet. Banana jam, guava juice, floral with a light cereal maltiness. Plenty of vanilla.
Palate
Smooth with bags of vanillla soft fruits and a lightly floral touch. Lots of character and good balance between the two elements.
Finish
Medium length. Touch of deeper rum notes.
Comment
Works pretty well. Rum in a supporting role, putting a different spin on the whisky.
