Nose
Light at start then getting more intense. Butterscotch, vanilla syrup. And some wood notes. Fresh oak, sawdust. A touch of dark fruit. Blackcurrant wine gums.
Palate
Sweet, surprisingly sweet for the strength. Same toffee like profile followed by a sherbety feel. Drying out on spices.
Finish
Dry, spicy with a nutty aftertaste.
Comment
A well structured dram. It only needs a small dash of water to cut the edges.

Nose
Milk chocolate, soft nougat bars. Then some chocolate Hobnob biscuits, oats and honey, then more intense fruits, roast pineapple and dark fruits.
Palate
Just explodes with spices and oak grip. Alcohol is well mastered. Some toffee and honey comes through as well.
Finish
Warming and spicy.
Comment
A stunner, so complex and engaging.
