Nose
Very pale colour. Smoky. Creosote. Farmyard, wet straw. Iodine. Fish oil. A slight cheese note.
Palate
Sweet then followed by a dry spicy outburst. Fizzy. The cheese note is there. Reminds me of Roquefort cheese tanginess.
Finish
Dry, burning, numbing.
Comment
This whisky seems to have matured in tired casks. Quite harsh. Water cuts the edges but does not give it style.

Nose
Spirity at first then a drying tobacco leaf note. Sweet with an edge of green sappyness. A little gentle smoke lurks in the background.
Palate
Layers of flames wash over the tongue, earthy like warming hay bales.
Finish
Gentle and peated.
Comment
With a little water this is a good outdoor whisky.
