Nose
Intense. Rich oak. Thick cut marmalade. Candied chestnuts. Bittersweet chocolate.
Palate
Crisp and grippy. So oaky. As if you were chewing wood chips. Very bitter and harsh like sanding paper.
Finish
In the same tonality.
Comment
I had a suspicion at first nose. Then it seemed to open on rich aromas. But the palate unfortunately confirmed my apprehension. Can't see the point in drinking wood!

Nose
Frank Cooper's marmalade, stewed oranges with brown sugar syrup. A little tomato stalk bitterness.
Palate
Plenty of oak here. The wood sap grips the tongue. Burnt sugar.
Finish
Short with that wood lingering.
Comment
A big whisky for wood fans or that last dram before bed.
