Nose
Pleasantly mature and liberally honey infused. Hints of earth, sawdusty oak and grass with a developing sherbet lemon character. The aromas become grainy with a light dried fruit note coming through to give it an old grain whisky-like feel.
Palate
Lightly oiled Gyanan-esque dried fruit at first, then a little oak, spice and sweetness. Pleasantly deep if a little straight-forward. Lovely mouth-coating oils.
Finish
Very long, the spices really hit top gear!
Comment
It lost a few points due to its simplistic palate but apart from that it was very enjoyable.

Nose
Eucalyptus oil, spearmint and cinnamon. An element of linseed oil and vanilla. Unusual, but interesting.
Palate
Vanilla once again, but here we find an additional sweetness to the earthy, more 'hippy' notes above. Sunflowers mixed with 'da herb', give this a vegetarian note. Not meaty, but herbal.
Finish
Slightly weak but leaves a waft of herbal tastiness behind.
Comment
Reminds me of a house party I once went to in Brixton; all tie-dye and hemp smoking. Nice, but lacking any real bite. Needs some irony goodness for some get-up-and-go
