Honey, vanilla, figs, fruity (banana, mango, lime), floral
Tropical fruits, spicy (ginger), sweet
Long, warm, sweet
- Very fruity
Glenfiddich, but a touch too bitter, which began softly on the nose, became
bigger on the palate, but exploded in the finish, totally overpowering the
The nose is creamy
and sweet on apples, pears and loads of honey. Hint of Fanta.
Caramel and some demerara sugar (must be from the rum cask). I also get a nice
trace of woodsmoke.
The arrival is a
little less creamy, but punchy. The oak speaks first.
Loads of spices like cinnamon and ginger, but also licquorice and a hint of
pepper. Then the sweetness kicks in: sugared oranges, apple sauce and some pear
syrup. The oranges turn slightly bitter midpalate.
The finish is fairly
long with a lot of bitter oranges, green herbs and oak.
The rum finish is present with a nose of suger cane and rum. also herbs, barley, bread and a little of coconut
A light fruity rum taste followed by spices
medium long finish of fading peppery spices
