Nose
Oily, youthful and a little feinty but the coffee, toffee covers. Hints of green apple, barley and subtle sherried, dried fruit follow. Hints of herbal rye-like notes.
Palate
Fresher with more citric character. Plenty of soft but grippy, sherrywood tannins. Hints of dry, dusty, coffee and mocha come through on the middle.
Finish
Good citric finish with the alcohol clearing the dusty residue to leave a heathery and dried herbal aftertaste.
Comment
A little raw beneath the oak, but if left longer in the cask the oak notes might possibly have become more drying and bitter.

Nose
This spirit is of good quality and the nose reflects this with a delicate touch of spirit, vanilla, honey and strawberry laces. It isn't overpowering but the aromas are not lost.
Palate
Easy drink, gives flavours of ginger cake and liquorice, with a hint of burnt toast and a touch of vanilla. With time the oak dryness becomes dominant.
Finish
Very dry and spicy, which detracts from the palate and the wonderfully inviting nose.
Comment
A great start but let down a little by the back palate and the overly dry finish.
