Nose
Intense and rich. Damp cider cellar. Oak is prevailing but well combined with fruit. Honeyed apples. That nose reminds me of some calvados. With water, polished oak floor.
Palate
Crisp and dry. With the same oak presence as on the nose but again nicely melting with sweeter notes. Toffee apple, ground ginger spice.
Finish
Dry, oaky, spicy.
Comment
An oaky character, slightly dour at first but opening on fruit and toffee. Be light when adding water.

Nose
Dark, rich heather honey, hints of blooming gorse bushes. Stewed apples with demerara sugar. The oak is here too with creamy vanillins and grilled pineapple.
Palate
Very fresh and invigorating, dry leaves, an open humidor with dark tobacco leaves, a little cedar. Sweet vanilla pastry, powdered sugar and spices.
Finish
Oak grips drying the mouth then a spiced apple note.
Comment
Very playful whisky that does not need much water. One to savour slowly.
