Chris Goodrum

Nose
Exuberantly estery and fruity with pineapple, banana, guava, melon, creamy oak and a touch of eucalyptus. A touch of pomegranate and musky flower emers along with a late toffee note. Over time the toffee begins to dominate.
Palate
Crisper and less estery than the nose, showing more barley, but the sub-tropical under-ripe banana, melon and pineapple are still there along with the toffee. Quite herbal, almost rye-like on the middle.
Finish
Long, juicy and really well balanced.
Comment
An all-round lovely malt. An Irish rye whiskey perhaps?

Nose
A flavoured whisk(e)y has slipped in? Nutmeg, vanilla, lemon and a little dried ginger. If there are no additional flavours here, lord knows what wood they have laid their hands on.
Palate
Slightly sweet, but then immediately very dry. The vanilla turns bitter, the caramel darker and the lemon zest more fleshy and pithy.
Finish
Very dry indeed, with lingering apple skins on the death.
Comment
Very unusual. Almost like a liqueur, but without any of the syrupy sweetness on the palate.
