Nose
Oak dominant, quite hard, dry bracken. Lots of bark-like woodiness, pine, garden clippings, old pine needles, vegetal, then comes sweet caramelised wood and a hint of custard. Bourbon like...
Palate
...but it isn't because it doesn't have the sweetness. Dry spirit and dry wood.
Finish
Firm oak.
Comment
Lost in the forest like Hansel and Gretel, but before they find the house of sweets.

Nose
Nutty and oaky. Autumnal fruit. Medlars, cooked apples.
Palate
Crisp and dry. Sherbety. Oak prevails and frames toffee apples. Getting spicier and drier.
Finish
Dry and spicy, slightly warming. Dusty.
Comment
The alcohol is not completely mastered. This whisky needs a good dash of water and gets fruitier.
