Nose
Powerful and spirited, with pronounced spicy cereal, a touch of nail varnish and very subtle vanilla.
Palate
Hot at first (water is definitely needed here) with a lovely peppery dryness, sweet cherries, some parma violet notes, cloves and star anise.
Finish
Those woody spices dominate at first, but a gentler side (especially the vanilla and ripe banana) develop as the conversation continues.
Comment
Quality whisky making here; everything sits nicely and at exactly the right volume.

Nose
Rich and intense. Sour fruit. Cranberries. Cedar wood. Cigar box. Orange marmalade. Kumquat. Cherry in eau-de-vie.
Palate
Sweet and satin-like. Surprisingly smooth given the strength. The palate delivers, the nose promises. Chocolate, sour fruit, all wrapped in wood.
Finish
Dry and crisp with a chocolate aftertaste.
Comment
An enticing and well structured bourbon.
