Nose
Lightly maritime aromas of estery apricot and pineapple with hints of honey. A touch of dried fruit appears along with a gentle whiff of smoke as well as an almost sweet grain spirit note.
Palate
Opens with toffee and milky / creamy oak vanillins which dominate, although I can just about sense a sweet grain-like note beneath. Straightforward but pleasantly deep.
Finish
Short and sharp with lingering grain-like notes.
Comment
Another one that has fallen foul of the oak on the palate. That grain spirit-like note seems to indicate that this might be a blend.

72
Nose
Big menthol hit at first, before vanilla, liquorice and paint. Lemon drops, floor wax and something plastic-tinged follows. Also, a bit of blackcurrant leaves.
Palate
Bizarre, tastes like Sweet Tart candies. Very waxy, plastic note, along with powdered sugar and lavender.
Finish
Quite floral and dusty. Shorter than anticipated.
Comment
Not sure about this one. Perplexing. It is very perfumey and perhaps not entirely balanced.
