Rob Allanson – 8.4

Nose: Gentle but all these tropical fruits emerge, papaya, mango and dried pineapple. Grain comes through, malt and raisin bread.

Palate: Huge sweetness and then those fruits come through. Gentle and delicate. A wood grip, coconut ice cream and caramel sauce.

Finish: All that fruit – nice and long, Coconut ice cream and gentle spicy notes at the end.

Comments: A delicate and gentle whiskey, one to savour. Takes its time to reveal its delights, but well worth it.

Sam Coyne – 7.8

Nose: Vanilla up-front, before lashings of flambé fruit. A little acetone and those fruit-salad chews. Apricots and cherries. Yum.

Palate: Big ol’ spices welcome you in, we’re talking cinnamon and nutmeg especially. More of those sweeties in the background and a slightly tannic hint. A slightly oily mouthfeel.

Finish: More and more of the chews, but becomes cleansing with a herbal, menthol finish.

Comments: A little surprising, but might not appeal to the purists.
