Nose
Big,fat and buttery with masses of Ben & Jerry fudge ice cream then a whiff of mint. Black pastilles,dark chocolate and reed. Moist earth,sandalwood.
Palate
Surprisingly nutty,almond toasty wood. Some pine sap (seems young). Water brings out the sweetness.
Finish
Eucalyptus once more.
Comment
Exotic herbal and vibrant.

Nose
Prickly,floral. Gillyflower. A cardboard note. Tangerine. Biscuity. Bourbon vanilla cream biscuits. The alcohol bite keeps the nose frisky.
Palate
Sweet,surprisingly sweet and smooth for such a high strength. Lots of vanilla. Butterscotch,a touch of salty caramel.
Finish
Dry,firm,fading on almondy notes.
Comment
A well tamed dram for its strength. Does not release a large array of aromas but keeps a good balance.
