Nose
Spirit, not a lot of wood impact here, this is more like a perfumed white wine. Peaches, white chocolate and some lavender. A bit waxy.
Palate
Spent match, burnt custard, candle wax and cheap purfume. This is more like an aged mezcal than a whisky (which is interesting in itself) with a squeeze of lime.
Finish
A hint of smoke which gives life to some sweet white flowers and bitter lemon.
Comment
This could do with much longer in the cask before being let out into the world. Makes me hope bottle-aging exists.

Nose
Smoky bacon crisps, honey and maple syrup glazed ham on a barbeque. Hints of camphor, lint, damp wool with a sharpness of chutney and clean smoke.
Palate
Wet charcoal and ash from the barbeque, cool flint and wet slate. Sun blush tomatoes, pulled pork and spiced chorizo with a smoky peanut finish.
Finish
Upfront, fast and furious, it doesn't hang around.
Comment
Very easy drinking.
