Nose
Luscious,sweet and thick. Soft caramel toffee with some milk chocolate and a little lift from a sulphury cedar note. With water there's immediate fireworks but once they've blazed off you've got dried sweet fruits.
Palate
There's light smoke here. Thick on the tongue. Good grip but with sufficient rich,mature fruit to balance wel.l
Finish
Long,lightly leathery.
Comment
A 70s playboy...all mirrored shades, suede jacket,woody aftershave and cigar.

Nose
Unmistakeably sherried. Dark wood. Damp earth floor and musty walls.
Palate
Sweet at start then giving way to oak. Grippy,especially as alcohol is not well mastered.
Finish
Oaky, dry and slightly burning.
Comment
The sherry influence has wiped out the distillery character. What's the fun to inhale and drink oak juice?
