Nose
Opens with light sulphur and a pleasing whiff of brand new welly boots. Then there's lime, garden twine, lawnmower oil and the overwhelming aroma of a garden shed.
Palate
Quite fat and buttery, with fruits now in charge (maybe we're in the garden now.) Ripe apples and a little drift of smoke. With water a green oily note.
Finish
Clean and soft.
Comment
I've no idea how you can distil a garden shed, but they've done it. Highly evocative - if weird.

Nose
Earthy and oaky. Hummus, wet leaves. Opens on nutty notes. Fresh walnuts. And some honey. Nougat.
Palate
Sweet with the texture of raw silk. Not as smooth as the nose leads to expect. Spicy with an oaky grip.
Finish
Very dry and warm. A touch of toffee balances the dryness in the end.
Comment
A firm oaky character. Water cuts the edges but enhances the oak bitterness. Will suit those who like these dry whiskies.
