Nose
It's a rum,isn't it? Sweet oak,liquorice, anise/fennel.Then in time,rosemary, coconut and peach. Liquorous.
Palate
Barley sugar melting in the mouth, then mix of sweet nut and guava. Lingering and smooth. Yup,a rum.
Finish
Nutmeg.
Comment
Layers of seductive soft fruitiness. A malt made in a Coffey still? Why the hell not.

Nose
Starts with a big alcohol punch. After a few seconds,you are taken on the rum road ! And more precisely on the ‘rhum grand arôme.' Medicinal. Clove oil,cardamom. Caramel,vanilla.
Palate
Not as sweet as the nose promised it to be. Oak prevails. A sharp spirit bite. But the Guyana rum Demerara profile cannot be denied.
Finish
Long,spicy,with a green stalk note.
Comment
I can't believe this is a whisky. A(decent) rum yes,but where is the grain?
