Nose
Oaky. Logfire. Dry wood. Opening on sweeter notes. Toffee apple. Mint chocolate. Pears in syrup. Restrained at first but unwinds in time.
Palate
Dry at first but with a velvety texture. Oak is definitely the leader but there is much more. Toffee again.
Finish
Dry and slightly astringent.
Comment
Give time to this whisky but avoid water which enhances the alcohol feel. There is some austerity in the character but it does open up with a bit of patience.

Nose
Reminiscent of a fire just dampened down, bonfire night. Treacle toffee and cinder toffee sweets. Some poached fruits, vanilla ice cream with toffee syrup.
Palate
Very syrupy with bags of toffee sweetness. Oak vanillin and a creamy note are present.
Finish
Crisp with a little bitterness.
Comment
Takes its time to reveal its depths, but they are there.
