Nose
Intensely fragrant. A bouquet of malty aromas intertwined with mature oak. With a delicate floral note. Fading rose. Opens on smoke and an oyster note.
Palate
Crisp and harsh. The feel of raw silk. Getting sweeter after a spicy burst. Fresh sensation. Still this floral note. Turkish delight. Fizzy. Gently burning. Some smoke and a mineral note.
Finish
Warm, dry, spicy.
Comment
An intense, enticing and rather condensed whisky.

Nose
Delicate smoked fish, like oak smoked trout. Wood polish and leather gloves. Warm Rye bread and proved dough. Some lilies just past their prime.
Palate
Sweet and clean. Lemon zest zing, cumin spice and a little Ras el hanout. Sweetness over time. Then a briny note, oily fish and smoke.
Finish
That smoked fish note then warm spices at the end.
Comment
A great restorative dram post dinner.
