Nose
Intense doesn't do this nose justice. Huge herbal rye, smoked bacon, red wine jelly, cinnamon sticks, earth, coffee, treacle, brambly black fruit, bitter chocolate and subtle marc-like notes. Water emphasises the rye.
Palate
Young, sweet rose petal marc and redcurrant jelly to start, but the bitter wood notes and alcohol hit the palate hard. Diluted, it's a bit homogenous.
Finish
So mouth-watering. It's almost painful to hold it in the mouth with lingering herbal marc-like notes.
Comment
Young, but entertaining.

Nose
Very dry forest floor, crunchy leaves and broken branches. Wafts of wood smoke and hay. With water, plums and vintage leather appear alongside mascherano cherries
Palate
Bitter oak is dominant here with the spirit playing the host to the oak's dryness and astringencies. Needs lots of water to develop the vanilla and spices hidden behind.
Finish
Any rye spices are lost behind the sweet vanilla and dry oak.
Comment
Could work well in an Old Fashioned.
