Nose
Quite herbal and autumnal with burnt coffee / toffee, subtle dried fruit, both grain and sherry derived. The sherry makes it feel quite weighty and adds mature feeling wood notes along with a touch of green wood smoke.
Palate
Full and sherried, but sulphury. There is a touch of earth, prune, coffee, walnut and raisins.
Finish
Astringent with green wood and the sulphur lingering.
Comment
It's interesting to note that the sulphur on the palate isn't really noticeable on the nose.

Nose
High ABV grain whisky. Incredibly exciting and inviting nose of the classics: soft marshmallow, chamois leather and vanilla. I'm really looking forward to trying this.
Palate
An odd almost curried note at the back of the mouth on this one, mixed with some banana and pulped plantain.
Finish
More of the curried spices and almonds.
Comment
Fantastic nose, the palate is… different.
