Nose
Exotic wood with a touch of incense. Thyme and rosemary. Very Fragrant. Cedarwood. A meaty note. Grilled sausage. Opening on dried sour fruit. Cranberry. Candied orange. Some complexity.
Palate
Sweet and balsamic. Liquorice (the sweet root). Dried fruit comes again.
Finish
Sweet with an astringent edge.
Comment
An old Bourbon? The nose is very interesting. The palate maybe a little behind. Avoid water.

Nose
Organic/rooty note at first, with pickled artichoke and a touch of peppery rye. Very dark chocolate note, blood orange zest, some smoked nuts and a blast of toasted wood.
Palate
A mighty fine mix of rich dark chocolate, Bourbon marinated cherries, more orange zest all swirled with a cinnamon stick.
Finish
Very dry, with woody spice leaving the palate tingling, remnants of the dark chocolate.
Comment
Clearly, it's big whisk(e)y month. This is about as wintery as they come – lock the door, make a Manhattan and curl up by the fire.
