Nose
Elegant mature nose which mixes nougat, peppermint, green/stewed apple then a perfumed lemon-grass quality. Fragrant and highly concentrated citrus, light smoke.
Palate
Complex and layered Cool and clean with dribbly fruit syrups and light grip. Very light smoke on an extended and evolved palate.
Finish
Orange bitters and embers, passion fruit and light liquorice.
Comment
Sheer classiness and head and shoulders above the rest for me.

Nose
A delicate hit of smoke, sort of distant bonfires. Eucalyptus honey. Fir trees and forest floors. Oak slowly comes through with vanilla.
Palate
Big spicy mouthfeel, makes your mouth water. Swwetness at the core and the smoke has vanished.
Finish
Big oak sweetness.
Comment
A warming dram. Well balanced and harmonious.
