Nose
Fizzy sweets offset with fruity bitter orange and genmaicha. Honeyed, floral, spicy jasmine sings.
Palate
Plasticky mouthfeel. Big mouthful of flowers – lavender, honeysuckle, jasmine and roses – as if I'm chewing on a bouquet. Chocolate underpins this all, unsurprisingly, accompanied by cardamom and a very pronounced chilli heat, accentuated by the ABV.
Finish
Numbing heat, yet somehow the clear honeysuckle and jasmine notes persist.
Comment
So floral on the palate it almost verges on soapy.

Nose
An impressively floral cherry blossom hit, but with a honey, syrup waffle underneath. Very sweet pastry edge lurks with this, then a gentle lavender drawer liner side comes through.
Palate
Those floral notes come right through on the palate, liquid petals, then an explosion of exotic spice, cardamon, paprika and chilli powder.
Finish
A big alcohol hit, warming, nearly hot. Water brings out the floral notes further.
Comment
An odd, but charming whiskey. Lacks that rye punch and pep.
