Nose
Classic, crisp, grainy almost pot still aromas with oily marzipan, vanilla and tart citrus. Herbal with a rye-like demeanour. Hints of baked melon, banana and apricot. Water shows its youth.
Palate
Oily with honey and citrus. The crisp, grainy spices are hidden but begin to emerge and add a frisky, tongue tingling element. Some squashed apricot and banana. Water brings forward the oak.
Finish
Intense, quite drying and grainy with a touch of young, herbal rye-like spirit notes showing.
Comment
You have to love its youthful intensity.

Nose
Light straw, hints of dehydrated pears, leading into marzipan and currants. Much less harshness on the nose then expected from the ABV.
Palate
Ester, turpentine. Quite creamy, with tones of pungent rubber with light tropical fruits shyly shining through.
Finish
Astringent and powerful with restrained vanilla and delicate honey mustard.
Comment
Difficult to get my head around, an enigma as to its position in the market. Even diluted, it's hard to discern any identity.
