Chris Goodrum

Nose
A thick, saturated and floral nose. A real riot of honey, barley, chunky oak, toffee and violets. Some crisp, herbal grain balances beautifully.
Palate
Crisper and grainier, with an almost mentholated freshness. Toffeed oak sits pliantly beneath. Straightforward but pleasantly deep with honey and coffee.
Finish
Long but very oaky. The toffee has become quite oily and some bitter, coffeed tannins make it a little drying.
Comment
I certainly wasn't expecting the oak fest on the finish! Not exactly subtle but entertaining nevertheless.

Nose
Battered sweetbreads, butterscotch and cool whip. Toffee too.
Palate
Sweet and slightly bitter. An odd combination. Red apple pie and rum drizzled with reduced honey.
Finish
Sweetness. Sweetness. Sweetness.
Comment
Is this a rum? Not a huge deal of complexity, balance or finesse, but packed full of sweet flavours.
