Chris Goodrum

Nose
Fragrant honey, menthol, marjoram and dried fruit. Quite unusual with an almost agricole rum-like demeanour. With time hints of herbal grain and subtle smoke.
Palate
More conventional with plenty of barley, lightly creamy oak and white fruit. The crisp, herbal grain comes through on the middle.
Finish
Good length. Quite spicy with the alcohol giving it a pleasantly intense, slightly grainy finish.
Comment
From the nose I was expecting a grain heavy blend but the malt component pleasantly balances the grain on the palate.

Nose
Not a lot going on in this closed nose. With some time in the glass green apples, crab-apples and gooseberries appear, with a back drop of vanilla custard.
Palate
A lovely and soft, ‘Mr Whippy' ice cream style which is mouth filling and surprisingly tasty after a slightly anaemic nose. Fully roasted potatoes and freshly cooked green veg give this a savoury edge.
Finish
Oak spices and ready salted crisps.
Comment
Not a bad little blended whisky. I don't think this will challenge too many people but might be a good gateway blend to richer offerings.
