Nose
Intense, grainy coffeed sherry and alcohol! Fragrant smoke, liquorice, toffee, fruitcake and herbal rye-like notes. Water softens and emphasises the herbal character.
Palate
Neat, it's soft and well behaved. Cask derived character – dried fruit, toffee, walnuts and coffee, gritty peat and spices. Lightly herbal on the middle. Water makes it a little simpler.
Finish
Long and soft with lingering lightly oiled dried fruit and smoke. Water emphasises the spices, delightful.
Comment
Surprisingly easy to drink neat, the palate not as alcoholic as the nose suggests.

Nose
An intriguing combination of sweet and savoury, with notes of smoked cheese, ham, and a tangy saltiness like balsamic vinegar.
Palate
Intense sweetness at the front of the palate, followed by the smoked cheese note from the nose, and a dry, herbal flavour, including subtle notes of fennel and anise.
Finish
More smoked cheese, dry wood, and after a while lighter notes of fruit cake.
Comment
An interesting combination of a spectrum of smoke flavours and an intense, liquorice root sweetness.
