Nose
Crisp and citric. Dry, woody rye with herbal notes. The oak is relegated to a supporting role and a touch of cold tea leaves, gooseberry, cabbage and green wood shavings appear.
Palate
Quite spirit driven with a little more oak. A lot more conventional than the nose would lead you to believe with crisp, herbal rye and developing bitter spice, treacle and caramel corn.
Finish
Very dry and oozing bitter spice, but there's just enough vanilla oak to stop your lips puckering up!
Comment
An absolutely fascinating nose.

Nose
At first there is a real spice note which gives way to black cherry, star anise and patchouli oil. Bold as brass, very inviting.
Palate
Much sweeter in the palate than the aromas from the nose suggest, this is very sippable indeed; blood orange, cereal and liquorice finish off the flavours.
Finish
Smooth, rounded with a hint of spice and chopped red chilli.
Comment
Very drinkable, but very spicy.
