Nose
Phenolic. Creosote. Wet seaweeds. Tar. Wet dog. Some citrus fruit in the back. Getting smokier on time. Opening on spices and roots. Galanga, nutmeg.
Palate
Oily. Very sweet and smooth. So surprising for a high strength ! “Pastilles du mineur” (tar and liquorice cough lozenges). A slight cardboard note.
Finish
Smooth, lemony.
Comment
A sweet islander. Can be enjoyed without water.

Nose
Initially, there's peppermint followed by a little clove. A vibrant attack that's tempered by butteriness and smoke.
Palate
Gorgeously balanced smoke and that essential element in peaty whiskies - sweetness. The oil of clove medicinal elements take you to the dentist rather than the hospital.
Finish
Lime and fresh fish - ceviche anyone?
Comment
Young but already with such balance. Recommended stuff.
