Nose
Fruit cake and mulberry. Very rum like with resin and lots of barley sugar.
Palate
That rummy note continues - into Savanna Grand Arome territory - with all the scented exoticism of Indian Ocean spices. Thick and sugary.
Finish
Tart.
Comment
Another which shows real promise. Just needs more integration to lose the rawness. Have patience guys!

Nose
Intense. Sweet. Pecan pie. Maple syrup. Nutty. A touch of chocolate and nuts bar. On time, prunes and sultanas.
Palate
Smooth at first but getting harsh and dry. The initial sweetness is followed by a spicy outburst then sweet fruit come back, soothing the spicy warmth.
Finish
Dry, spicy, with a nutty aftertaste.
Comment
A strong character with a Deep South aromatic profile. I found the nose more convincing than the palate, still a bit spirit for me. But there are aficionados for flaming drams.
