Nose
At first it teetered between savoury and sweet with the latter taking over. Cherry Heering, maple syrup on pancakes and cinnamon sticks. Pink Lady apples and sweet hickory sauce with a waft of incense sticks and sumac.
Palate
Grippy and hot with out of the oven pastry case and plum jam filling. More exotic sandalwood, violet, menthol, aniseed and angelica.
Finish
Intense and grippy, gentle spice with time and a coating finish.
Comment
A complex weave, this takes water and time to unravel.

Nose
From lightness, straight into a deep dark tunnel. Powerful, with a heavy, peppery rye note, malted toast, spicy black tobacco leaves and turned earth. Proper autumn stuff.
Palate
Beastly on the palate, with rich dark chocolate, cinnamon, sour cherries and more tobacco. At 60% it will give your gums a proper work out. Water brings out a leathery note.
Finish
Dry, powerful and immediately appealing. Well defined strength creates a lasting impression.
Comment
This one is for American whiskey purists.
