Nose
Gamey upfront, roast venison and the fattiness. Dried beef. Spent match sulphuriness, a dark sugar sweetness. A distant bonfire, fresh turned soil earthiness. A melon fruitness too.
Palate
Hello peat there you are, heavy smoke hits then gives way to pears and apples, all wrapped in dark honey and paprika spices.
Finish
Long, waves of smoke and sweet cherry blossom, drying onto spices and game.
Comment
Hipflask, spade, onion sets, biltong and burning off- cuts in the evening light. Blissful.

Nose
Tropical fruit; melon, pineapple and papaya. Underpinned by a layer of light smoke. Lovely!
Palate
Wow! A little ashy, before some wooded spice around the edge of the tongue grabs hold and doesn't let go. Quite bracing, although not quite as layered as the nose.
Finish
A long finish with a final big whack of smoke, before a hint of cinnamon.
Comment
Might not sing for those who require their whiskies to do a bit of everything under the sun. Nothing wrong with that though – a solid dram.
