Nose
Maple syrup sweetness with a burning ember aroma behind. A glowing campfire of exotic woods.
Palate
Mental. Burning pyres. The smoke remains in this weird woodsmoke, while the spirit shows itself as being very sweet, slightly lean, but very clean.
Finish
A slight edginess but this is a hugely original smoked whiskey.
Comment
For some reason I keep thinking of Gram Parson's immolation at Joshua Tree.

Nose
Oaky. Damp wood (a cask in a warehouse) with a musty note. Cedar wood. Wood, wood, wood… In the back a floral note (heady flower). Very unusual.
Palate
And wood again… Musty, woody, bitter. Walnut stain. Surprisingly, the alcohol is rather well mastered.
Finish
Bitter, short.
Comment
A Bourbon which has stayed too long in oak ?
