Nose
Gooseberries and smoke mixed with a wicker/bamboo basket filled with clean laundry. More smoke with water along with light date syrup.
Palate
Immediate smoke,countered with fruit syrups,sweet nuts. The smoke threads its way through all of this. Good integration.
Finish
Long and slightly smoked.
Comment
A constantly shifting but balanced mix of sweetness and smoke and distillery character.

Nose
Big smoke but wrapped in sharp fruits and damp cotton,like a T-shirt you have worn near a bonfire,but the day after. Very delicate floral notes,but something bracken like lurking as well.
Palate
Smoke fills the mouth but this subsides and leaves a sweet soapy and nutty layer.
Finish
The smoke keeps on going.
Comment
The rum seems to add fruit and a nuttiness to this great dram.
