Chris Goodrum

84
Nose
Generously proportioned with mashed banana, toffee, crunchy honeycomb, apricot and fig. An almost Manzanilla-like oxidised fruit note along with a light herbal note.
Palate
Full and generous. Less complex than the nose due to the voluptuous toffeed oak, but some tart citrus balances and hints of barley, banana and apricot come through.
Finish
Long, crisp, austere and almost grainy or Irish pot still-like. Interesting!
Comment
A pretty entertaining dram. I certainly wasn't expecting that finish!

Nose
Heather at first, and then the smell of freshly rolled parchment. Some elements of tweed or woollen jumpers on a damp spring morning.
Palate
There is a note here which nods in the direction of a distillery close to the river Spey, but the sweetness and heather this delivers means it could be from any number of high class Speyside distilleries.
Finish
A slight bitter note but the winner is warm shortbread.
Comment
A lovely example of Speyside Scotch Single Malt.
