90
Nose
Aromatic and earthy with dark, toasted wheat flakes, liquorice, nut kernel and bran along with balsamic, sour fruit, treacle and dark wood notes. Astringent but a lovely vitality with late floral violets.
Palate
Herbal with dark wheat, treacle and bracing citrus notes which add freshness. Wood tannins arrive but are promptly succeeded by sweet herbs, sour fruit and a touch of camphor.
Finish
Long and moist, the oak vanillins add lightness to the sour fruit. Smoky, treacly finish.
Comment
Fantastically complex with the oak playing second fiddle to the spirit character.

Nose
Rich and broad shouldered, this whiskey gives buttered chicken, cajun spices and vanilla.
Palate
Spices are at the fore, with some hot buttered popcorn, salted caramel and spicy chorizo.
Finish
Popping candy, sour dough bread and cherry.
Comment
A really, really lovely whiskey which will work well as a sipper and in a cocktail.
