Dave Broom

Nose
A wildly spiced nose: caraway, turmeric, dried mint (freshly made mint sauce), banana chips, plain wood. Cereal. Bourbon like.
Palate
Light. The mintiness carries through. Some hard youth battling against sweetness from the oak. Cinnamon balls.
Finish
Short.
Comment
The best Greenore yet. Worth a look.

Arthur Motley

Nose
Crab apple and redcurrant jelly. A bourbony, grain-like character is more evident. A little cloying after a time, like the sweetness of jam cooking.
Palate
Lots of vanilla, filled with new sawn oak.
Finish
That vanilla oozes back like a half-sucked caramel chew.
Comment
A simple but satisfying whiskey that almost tricked me into thinking it was a bourbon at times. Good stuff for its age too.
