Nose
Intense. Varnish. Exotic wood. Vetiver. A sour fruit note which evokes a rye whiskey. Then vanilla creeps in and heads the way. Sweet and luscious.
Palate
Rich, deep. The same sour fruit note wrapped in creamy vanilla custard. Oak is more present than on the nose.
Finish
Dry, spicy. Ginger and white pepper. Blancmange in the back.
Comment
The balance between sweet and sour is perfect. A grain whisky? I would have thought of an old bourbon.

Nose
Dry and dusty. A sweet oakiness is here balanced with a little bitter dark chocolate.
Palate
Plenty going on, tangy orange with brown sugar. Hints of vanilla cream and stewed fruits.
Finish
Dry and sweet.
Comment
A cracking grain whisky.
