Nose
A hospital note. Ether even chloroform. Slowly fading away to give way to candy floss, barley sugar, vanilla syrup, demerara sugar caramel. Then a distinct peppery note which balances the sweetness
Palate
Sweet and smooth. Burnt caramel, demerara sugar, treacle, raisins in eau-de-vie. Then that peppery touch of the nose comes back with an oaky touch.
Finish
Dry, peppery.
Comment
Once the funny off note has gone, we have a pleasant whisky, not over sweet. Refreshing spicy profile.

82
Nose
Menthol. Eucalyptus gum trees then orange barley water, brown sugar, melting caramel and toffee apples. Roasted capsicum with balsamic vinegar and crushed black peppercorns.
Palate
Bags of sugar, treacle and raisin Danish pastry. A custard note as well. Creamy oak, bread and butter pudding. That roast capsicum sweetness comes through at the end.
Finish
Lush, creamy and oak laden.
Comment
An engaging, intriguing and interesting whisky.
