Nose
Oaky. Damp wood. An earthy note. Like walking by a heap of apples in a Norman orchard on a drecht September day. A distant note of dying bonfire. On time, a more appealing floral note. Marshmallow.
Palate
Quite smooth at first then tightening on an astringent feel and flavour. Oak and dried apple. Dusty spices in the back.
Finish
Dry, dusty and spicy.
Comment
A dour character which lifts up on the nose but not on the palate.

Nose
Back in the humidor again, drying leaves, tobacco smoke. A little candle wax. Some floral and fruit notes too.
Palate
Almost smoked applewood cheese. Oak is here and dries things out a little. Gentle spices warm the mouth.
Finish
Drying with spices.
Comment
A great autumnal whisky, mirrors the season.
