Nose
This is going to sting a little. Massive spirit, but behind it, some Brazil nuttiness, brittle toffee and some crunchy nut cornflakes.
Palate
Crab apple jelly, some coconut, cocoa power and then puff it's gone. Quick as you like. After the palate clears, you get stewed plums and something a little milkier.
Finish
Short, with an oakiness and powdery red apple.
Comment
At this strength, one wonders what it's trying to prove.

Nose
Oh so young, acetone and unripe pears. Then huge maple syrup sweetness, Belgian waffles with butter. Cornbread, warm with strawberry jam.
Palate
Massive alcohol hit, almost overwhelms the palate. Oak aged vodka with fruit chews, mango and strawberries.
Finish
Alcohol and caramel, very short.
Comment
Clearly a young feisty thing, water tries its best to help but it's a failing battle. Will be interesting to see how time tames this one.
