Chris Goodrum

78
Nose
A little neutral but gently fragrant with hints of herbal spirit. Quite grainy whisky-like with a touch of rum-like dried fruit, some corn-like notes and a touch. of toffee.
Palate
Soft and toffeed with some developing, lightly oiled Guyana-esque dried fruit. Pretty simple but pleasantly deep.
Finish
Long and gently spiced with the dried fruit becoming slightly fragrant in character and a herbal grainy nip coming through.
Comment
Unencumbered by complexity, but it's a pleasant quaffer, as they say.

Sara Smith

68
Nose
Light and fruity, pear and rhubarb, with undertones of new make spirit. Over time, the fruit notes seem more stewed, with hints of vanilla and ginger tea.
Palate
Well-rounded and sweet, with a solid warmth to it. Notes of rolled oats and tart fruit to start, followed by dry wood and warm spices.
Finish
A finish of liquorice root, soda water, and desiccated coconut.
Comment
This is a whisky with a tropical feel to it – bright and refreshing; equally good served neat or with soda.
