Nose
This noses like an old whisky with plenty of dunnage warehouses, polished walnut wood, dates and aged rum.
Palate
A wonderfully rich and complex palate with a huge amount of mixed fruits of all colours (red, yellow and blue) with a slight herbal note that nods in the direction of absinthe.
Finish
Pure Lion's golden syrup and rum. Loganberries.
Comment
Rum baba in a glass, a stand out whisky in this flight

Nose
Delicate musky rose, baked peach and strawberry compote. The nose has a soothing balm-like quality like polished cedarwood and rich runny honey.
Palate
Cherry lozenge, linctus syrup and liquorice. Orange and rose Turkish delight, spicy sumac and red currant jelly.
Finish
Sweet and coating, a little cloying but relaxes with water.
Comment
This feels quite fragile so treat gently and take your time.
