Nose
Quite oily and immature with plenty of herbal marc-like aromas and hints of wheat flakes and boiled sweets. With time some apple, pear, cocoa, earthy spice and a touch of beech wood smoke appears.
Palate
Oily and a little on the feinty side with some light nutty notes along with earthy spice but the overriding sensation is of immature spirit.
Finish
Medium length. Quite spicy with some natural, oily cocoa bean notes.
Comment
What is this? A flavoured whisky? A strange European whisky? Either way, it's perhaps a bit young.

Nose
Woah! Cocoa puffs and BBQ smoke. Very grainy. Like puffed wheat squares. Chocolate, nuts, but an odd smokiness that seems to want to break through – not peat but campfire. Not like something I've nosed before. Weird but appealing.
Palate
Intense on palate – won't be for everyone. Quite odd. Butter, smoke, baked cookies, menthol and wax.
Finish
Peanut butter and popcorn. Sticks around for a good while.
Comment
Something very different and not for the faint hearted. Even after a few sips I couldn't decide how I felt about it.
