Nose
Crispy bacon rashers, slightly waxy like beeswax, polished oak and damp tweed. Gentle smoke lurks, distant wood fires. Toasted linseed bread with bitter orange marmalade.
Palate
That wood smoke unfurls. A sauna – warm, damp cedar wood and birchwood smoke. Underneath fruits, red berries and blackcurrants.
Finish
Long and delicately smoked, with a slight bacon fattiness to it.
Comment
Just lovely, different and quite breathtaking.

Nose
Full-English in bed? Would be rude not to. A roasted meat aroma that is slightly underpinned by clean linen. Curious...
Palate
If the nose was a full-English, you've now moved on to Canadian pancakes. Syrup and summer berries. A bit of wood smoke. You've left the breakfast in bedandnowsitbya forest camp-fire.
Finish
Long and we're back to cooked meats.
Comment
This breakfast whisky is catching on. Could be trouble! I'm not much of a bacon fan, but that nose could turn a vegetarian.
