Nose
Big and sweet with masses of vanilla essence, creme brulee and toffee apple. It's all about the cask rather than the sweet spirit underneath, something that's accentuated with water where there's touches of sawdust and banana.
Palate
Not as hot as the nose suggests. Sweet with tight oak. Softens well on the palate. Better balance than the aroma.
Finish
Short, slightly hot.
Comment
Attractive enough but lacks complexity. There again, it's only 8yo.

Nose
Tangy, biting. Turkish delight, hint of wild rose. A bit of fudge or rather tablets. Then wet straw. Apple skin.
Palate
Aggressive. Sour and bitter. With a cardboardy note.
Finish
Short, prickly.
Comment
The various elements are not in balance for my liking.
