Nose
Fresh and honeyed with a light mentholated herbal note. Fruity with hints of apricot and pineapple; a light coastal note and just a sliver of peat smoke.
Palate
Heavier on the honey with coffee, gritty tannins and burnt wood embers. Dense fruit gives the palate a good depth. The saltiness builds well on the middle and a distant peat note can be detected.
Finish
Long and lightly oiled with violet and lingering wood spices. A dry, salty after-taste.
Comment
ery harmonious. The dense, fruitiness of the spirit gives it weight and it's not one dimensional.

Nose
Phenolic. Smoky. Briny. Smoked fish. A sweet note in the back. Touch of nail varnish. Lemon drop. With water, creosote.
Palate
Silky. Sweet and smoky. Kippers (but not the salty ones). Fresh garden mint.
Finish
Gently soothing on a liquorice note. Smoked almond.
Comment
Probably matured in second fill bourbon casks. Not complex but refreshing.
