Nose
Asuperb combination of outdoor and indoor fragrances. Sun warmed pine cones with a touch of humus, wet sand and seashells. Candyfloss, grated lemon zest. Peaty and smoky.
Palate
In the same key. But less complex. Oak tends to stiffen the aromas. Dries on peat and spices.
Finish
Spicy,dry,smoky
Comment
A charming nose which is not fully delivered on the palate. But an excellent dram all together.

Nose
Toastyness,cooked apples,apricots and peaches,with vanilla and honey mid-way.
Palate
Lightly creamy,crème caramel richness balanced by dryness, apricots,peaches and a background waft of smoke.
Finish
Fruity,creamy vanilla followed by subtle smoke.
Comment
Various highlights reveal themselves, just like a great sight-seeing holiday.
