Nose
Heavily oaked nose, plenty of vanilla with pineapple, banana and sweet but herbal rye-like spices. Rather sweet and buttery but the spices keep it lively.
Palate
Initially toffeed oak but the herbal rye-like spices come through fast. Drier than the nose with softer spices and a herbal intensity.
Finish
Long and herbal (camphor and camomile). A touch of honey and coffee. Sweet oak returns to counteract the drying spices. The dryness holds.
Comment
Love the intensity of this. Not to everyone's taste, but if you love young, herbal rye whisky then it will be.

Nose
Malty. At first an earthy and floral note. Bracken and gorse. Fresh sap. Then sweet aromas arrive. Vanilla, barley sugar.
Palate
Smooth and sweet. Satin-like texture. Vanilla syrup with a touch of cinnamon. Reluctantly drying on a spicy note.
Finish
Quite short, nutty. A chocolate mint aftertaste.
Comment
A pleasant dram but maybe too much on the sweet side. Some green oak on the palate. Best served without water.
