Nose
Unusual nose for a whisky! So rum like. One of those medicinal long fermentation Caribbean rums. Cloves, guava jam, heady exotic flowers. Mango juice.
Palate
Sweet at first then astringent. The same rum aromas. It can't be a whisky. The sweet flavours come back. Roasted banana, cloves again.
Finish
Fades away quickly. Sweet and astringent at the same time.
Comment
I am puzzled, Crown Royal? Well I'd never have guessed.

Nose
Caramel toffee, burnt brown sugar, pear drops and warming rye bread. Candied apple slices, lots of vanilla and buttered popcorn. Some exotic fruits lurk too.
Palate
Toasted marshmallows, vanilla crisp biscuits. Then the fruit comes through with vague dusty spices.
Finish
A little bitter wood and sweetness.
Comment
Complex and well put together.
