Nose
Young, oily and slightly feinty with some sweet oak and corn beneath. A touch of herbal rye, marzipan, peanut butter, dunnage and chilli spice follows.
Palate
Oily, but not so feinty with soft, slightly singed corn, bitter oak and bitter, herbal rye. Not very integrated with both youthful spirit and tired old spirit notes.
Finish
Dry and bitter with lingering herbal rye, chilli spice, hickory and bitter chocolate.
Comment
Gives the impression of a worn out old spirit and revived by vatting in youthful spirit.

Nose
A big city swagger with this. Self-assured, this is a new leather jacket, Black Jacks, and Big Red chewing gum, with a waft of oil burner smoke.
Palate
Unashamedly fruity, with an excellent balance of dryness to allow the fruits to flourish. The cinnamon from the Big Red means this lingers on the palate well.
Finish
The cinnamon carries on, working well with wood to give a rounded drink.
Comment
One to be consumed on its own – preferably swigged from a hip flask with a cigar.
