Nose
Crisp with sweet corn, linseed oil coated rye bread and darker, wheat notes. The oak is well hidden but develops with time as do some sour mash notes.
Palate
Fuller and malty with treacle, rye bread and bitter chocolate notes. Hints of almond oil, sour dough, spice and wheat/bran flakes on the middle.
Finish
Quite bitter, sour and spicy, enhanced by the alcohol but the treacle offers some balance, well, sort of!
Comment
Intriguing and contemplative. In fact it goes rather well with Green and Blacks organic milk chocolate!

Nose
A closed nose that really benefits not from water, but just time in the open air eventually revealing Madagascan vanilla, toffee apple and oak chippings.
Palate
Clean with a sweet twist, this is a tale of two halves. The clean crispness of the spirit hits first, then the sweetness of the oak comes through.
Finish
Butterscotch, herbal notes of lavender and mint.
Comment
Is this a sipper? Yes. Is it a mixer? Probably.
