Nose
Vanilla, bergamot peel, some chamomile, lily of the valley and parma violet.
Palate
A little gluey, with the UPV notes hitting the palate first but it develops into green apple, fresh asparagus and foam banana penny sweets.
Finish
Mr Whippy Ice Cream and some cinnamon spices.
Comment
Despite being quaffable, this seems like a work in progress, which needs a little more time in the cask to allow the spirit to balance out a touch more.

Nose
Sweet, rich Demerara aromas. So reminiscent of a Jamaican rum.
Palate
Very sweet and thick. Cloying. The same Demerara character. With Vanilla. Milk chocolate. A slight cardboard note. Drying on soft spices.
Finish
Sweet, quickly fading. Quite sugary.
Comment
Is that a whisky? Hard to imagine. If so, a whisky disguised in rum attire.
