Nose
Intense. Fungal, mossy, pine needles. Shifts from outdoor aromas to indoors ones. Poached pears topped with a hot chocolate sauce and vanilla ice cream.
Palate
Smooth and sweet at start. Then spices tease the tongue in a cheerful way. In spite of the high strength, no burning nor astringency.
Finish
Long, spicy, slightly nutty.
Comment
A rich multi layered whisky which, surprisingly, I enjoyed better without water. The latter enhances a bitter tone.

Nose
Big and earthy, full of wet leaves and resin. Also a big chocolate note and honey comes through.
Palate
Honey comes through then the spices open up. The sweetness clings to the tongue.
Finish
Long with more spices.
Comment
A very lush complex whisky.
