Nose
Sweet and smoky:red fruits & woodsmoke,jelly babies and peat. Some cream soda then frazzles (bacon snacks).Even smokier with water. With water a floral edge to the smoke and boiled sweets.
Palate
Just a touch of artificial perfume on the tip of the tongue which knocks it down a point or two. Floral with good bite and grip.
Finish
Fruit jelly and lightsmoke.
Comment
Substantial and well balanced (bar that perfumed note).

Nose
Phenolic. Creosote. Smokes rises slowly. Wet dog.Burning straw. Smoked cooked salmon. Cow's breath. Hint of mint.
Palate
Oily,mouth coating. Sweetness adds to that feel of thickness. Then dry spices and a touch of wood stiffen tastebuds. Needs water to make a better balance.
Finish
Dry,slightly rough.
Comment
The palate is not as smoky as the nose. An interesting dram if not completely balanced.
