Nose
Very feinty and raw with hints of wet cardboardy cereal and coffee. Harsh and herbal with no supporting oak or balancing sweetness.
Palate
Very herbal and marc-like. Youthful and cardboardy with little oak or sweetness.
Finish
Intense, raw and herbal.
Comment
You can't hurry maturation.

Nose
A bold nose that is unabashed with a spirit focus and some elements of wood. There is a sweetness that hides the spicy rye notes, which are hard to find.
Palate
The spirit is the first note to hit, which hides any noticeable notes of base ingredient or indeed oak influence, which eventually appears.
Finish
More spirit with some hints of rye spice and cherry sherbet. Very sweet and not really spicy at all.
Comment
Feels experimental.
