Nose
Deep,with toffee,sealing wax/teak oil, some spice (cumin and coriander). Water exposes the oak.
Palate
Lots of cask activity. Digestive biscuit, macadamia.Sugar and black cherry shifting into tobacco. Lots of oak but a sweet spirit underneath. Has age.
Finish
A little dry,but I'm getting to like it.
Comment
Best neat.

Nose
Intense,fruity. Pleasant after a slightly cheesy but quickly fading touch. Cider apple. Turkish delight. Sesame nougat.
Palate
Sweet at first then the alcohol bite sharpens the sensation. Butterscotch. Spicy dryness. Tabasco.Touch of orange gingerbread.
Finish
Dry with a leafy note.
Comment
Seems to hesitate between sweet and dry. Water gets the balance right.
