Chris Goodrum

Nose
Estery, summery and aromatic with pineapple, banana and fresh barley. Creamy American oak mingles with some tighter grainier oak tannins. Hints of grass and lime.
Palate
A little weak and underpowered, but pleasantly citric with lime, barley and vanilla. Again, there's some taught, grainy tannins on the middle.
Finish
Crisp, slightly alcoholic with lingering barley and grass.
Comment
Lovely aromas, but the palate lacks the promise or complexity of the nose. Definitely a work in progress.

Nose
Apple sours. This is a dram which is hiding, but for what reason? I don't know. It's sweet and inviting, but could be bolder.
Palate
A palate of whipped cream, brandy butter and ginger ale, backed with a slight hint of bitter smoke and oak dryness. Vanilla is there, but masked by the aforementioned flavours.
Finish
Delicate smoke and oak, dry and lingering.
Comment
A Jack of all trades whisky.
