Nose
Honey with a suggestion of chocolate, but also herbal notes.
Palate
Peppery and dry, but also creamy.
Finish
Orangey, zesty. Appetisingly spicy. Cilantro?
Comment
Very distinctive. Bring on the chicken mole.

Nose
Rich, wooded. Like a dunnage warehouse. Molasses, Christmas cake. European oak.
Palate
Charred timbers. The spirit has a fruity weight but the wood is in charge. Too dry and tannic.
Finish
Dry.
Comment
A shame as you don't find many wholly port pipe matured whiskies, but this has lain in the cask for too long.
