Nose
Edgy and slightly industrial with hard barley and hints of wine gums, burnt caramel, honey and coffee.
Palate
Industrial, hard barley with hints of honey and homogenous sweet fruit, although there isn't enough sweetness to offset the industrial character. Lightly coffeed and oily middle.
Finish
Medium length with lingering industrial notes and a touch of spice.
Comment
As readers will know, this is not a style of whisky that I warm to.

Nose
Pineapple which has been griddled and placed on top of a milk rum punch. There is barley water too and hints of toasted coconut and vanilla.
Palate
It takes a while to settle down, and as it does it brings out big copper tones, bloody orange pith, cardamom and fennel. The alcohol gives this some fire, too.
Finish
Lingering spice of fennel and clove give this almost a Scandinavian feel.
Comment
Nice, could do with being a touch more mellow to score higher.
