Nose
Oaky. Antique shop, cigar box. A meaty note, dark chocolate. A hint of geranium. Getting more floral and sweeter on time. Cloved orange.
Palate
Sweet at start then drying out on a very spicy kick. Bitter orange marmalade. Ginger. Oak is well integrated.
Finish
Dry, spicy and fruity. Cider apple.
Comment
The oaky start leads way to a cheerful fruity and floral profile. Marked by the sherry but not on the dark (woody) side. Avoid water.

Nose
A lurid colour reminiscent of Lucozade. Masses of coconut: cream; dessicated; flesh; oil; bounty bars. Hot gorse. Underneath there's lime, banana split and chocolate.
Palate
Slick and sweet. Seems as if this thick veneer of sweet oak is smothering the spirit.
Finish
Guess? Yup. Coconut.
Comment
I was expecting the atypicality to be the world's first Malibu finish, but no...maybe it is just atypical for Welsh whisky.
