Nose
?Masses of dry ginger, nutmeg and lemon balm. The second sniff reveals musk, spice rubbed steak and masculine gents aftershave notes. Is this a whisky?
Palate
?The palate is spice laden, peppery, aromatic and warming, with an over powering spiciness and spirit.
Finish
?Extremely short, with a touch of dried ginger.
Comment
?Not unpleasant, but just too far removed from the (already vastly cavernous) flavour profile whisky has.

Nose
?Very aromatic, Gingersnap biscuits, custard tars with nutmeg spice, Bay Rum, a faint citrus note as well, camomile lotion.
Palate
?Now those spices are really coming through, chilli rice crackers, chicory, cardamon and spiced apple sauce.
Finish
?Crisp and clean with some spices lingering on.
Comment
?An interesting approach and flavour profile.
