Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
This smelled exactly like my Mum’s Christmas cake, some serious Proust stuff going on. I’m thinking this is going to be amazing.
Unfortunately it’s got that lavender/Parma Violet/soap thing you get in whiskey.
Looking at the colour of it, it’s got to be the aging process making this so bad. I guess they age them in Scotland, which just isn’t working for me.
Personal taste though innit, the rating below mine is an 8 and my mate that’s well into whiskey loved it.
Light gold colour. The nose is woody, on the wet forest, the wood wet after the rain. The moss on the trees. It's light. Then comes the pastry notes, almond, waffle, butter. On the palate, we keep the same notes, waffle, butter. Nice length in the mouth, but it is very bitter and we do not find the woody characteristic of the Port Mourant. It's a nice version.
