Sons of Liberty Spirit Company
Rob Allanson – 8.5
Nose: A hot minerality at first, then shelves of old books, dusty and sweet mold. Fruit, damsons and plums. A little mac and cheese.
Palate: A sweet and sour effect, mandarin slices and a lemon citrus edge. Grilled chop with cinnamon and apple sauce. Gentle oak grip.
Finish: Sweet and juicy and then at the end the oak makes itself known.
Comments: Has a complex nose, a little dialled back on the palate, and then what a finish. A rollercoaster of a whiskey.
Sam Coyne – 8.5
Nose: Lots of cereal to begin. Oats, malt and spice. Ripe plums and a banana hint.
Palate: Banana skins, before the warmth of oak grips. You get a lashing of vanilla before something faintly smoky. Cereals make their presence felt.
Finish: Sweeter, but its more caramel than fruit.Intriguingly smoky.
Comments: Pretty good fun as it dives around in different directions. Satisfying enough to be your staple, while quirky enough to bring out on special occasions.
