Nose
Intense and prickly. Malty. Cereal bowl with honey and dried fruit. Raisins. Dried apricot. Opens on creamy toffee notes. Hint of polished oak floor. In time, mint chocolate.
Palate
Smooth at start then abruptly drying on hot spices. Giving a fizzy feel on the tongue. Oak gets grippy.
Finish
Warm, dry, oaky.
Comment
The nose lets you expect more sweetness. Oak is overwhelming on the palate.

Nose
Fresh sawn wood, old leather gloves, hints of chocolate, soft red fruits. eventually a coffee note develops.
Palate
Another spiced firework laced with chocolate and those toffee notes. There is some soft fruit here too. Hints of tobacco.
Finish
Warming.
Comment
Shows great balance. Not the usual Diageo distillery release. Nice to see the lesser known get an airing.
