Nose
Fruity and creamy. Luscious caramel aromas. Candied orange. A touch of praline.
Palate
Velvety, coating. Orange custard. Gets very spicy, cinnamon and ginger. Exotic citrus, vetiver. A distant note of coconut.
Finish
Spicy, dry. Dark chocolate bitter bite.
Comment
A rich whisky which has taken some exotic and sensuous notes from the rum. Stiffens up on the finish.

Dave Broom

82
Nose
Oak driven. Crushed toasted hazelnuts on top of a banana and chocolate dessert. Needs time to open and show its full rich sweet depth.
Palate
Gentle and well layered. Cigar, caramelised peach. Deep and balanced.
Finish
A rich concentrated fruitiness that then gives way to a crisp oak.
Comment
A classy package with the rum adding its character to an already well-matured spirit. This is what finishing is about.
