Nose
Prickly at first nose. Better let it settle a minute. Malty and fruity. Dried apricots and prunes soaked in a vanilla syrup. Almond cake. A hint of cherries. Gets creamier on time. Touch of ginger.
Palate
Sweet and smooth with a raw silk texture. Slightly tangy on the tongue but less than expected. Fruity and biscuity. Pear and apple flan. Water brings out some bitter notes.
Finish
Dry and spicy.
Comment
Interesting whisky but the high ABV requires some precautions. Time, a dash of water and you have an energetic and talkative dram!

Nose
Gentle and shy at first, hides behind its alcohol wire fence. Eventually a lovely grain note comes out, then fresh fruit, melons and strawberry sorbet. A little pine flour cleaner, more spices, ginger, cinnamon.
Palate
Massive creamy notes, oak shavings, bread and butter pudding, hot buttered honey and cornbread. A little menthol. Dark chocolate cake. A little bitter edge too.
Finish
Short, dry and moreish.
Comment
Under all that alcohol lies a gorgeous, delicate dram.
