Nose
Aromas of treacle toffee coated apple, prune, walnut, hazelnut and citrus. A corn-like note and developing chlorinated rye-like notes as well. Very clean and lightly herbal with a touch of violets and camphor.
Palate
Dates in syrup, then chewy wood tannins and herbal accented spices. Walnuts, prunes and that camphor and herbal rye-like character on the middle. Water sweetens the oak.
Finish
Good length. Very herbal and dry. Longer and sweeter with water.
Comment
Now that's an impressive oak monster. Like a high rye content American, but I don't think it is.

Nose
A warming dry note up front; some fennel / lovage herbaceous notes, some peppery rye and ripe cherries. Tobacco notes develop with a little water.
Palate
Enormous dryness, but with that comes rich wood, tobacco, creamy ice cream and dark cherries. A touch of water helps to open up the spice and warm up the fruitiness. Superb.
Finish
Wonderfully lengthy and complex, with some incredible weight too. Spot on.
Comment
I'm keeping the rest of this sample to try it out in a Manhattan. I suspect I won't be disappointed.
