Nose
Sweet. Demerara sugar. Grassy.Fennel. Vanilla syrup. Like a distant rum note.
Palate
Smooth,velvety. Caressing.Beautiful mouthfeel. Pears cooked in a vanilla syrup.
Finish
Long,reluctantly fading.
Comment
A bourbon cask maturation followed by a rum finish ? Take your time to enjoy this sunny dram. Really subtle.

Nose
Sweet but rustic,with damp straw, some meatiness,a touch of ginger root.
Palate
Pineapple candy,very sweet,clean barley,zesty with some late spice.
Finish
Medium long,pleasant and with some sweet pepper and/or paprika notes.
Comment
Complex,intriguing but perhaps a tad too sweet for this taster.
