Nose
Grassy and malty. Camomile. Malt flour. Butterscotch. Chestnut purée.
Palate
Oily and rich. Coats the palate. A faint sweetness then a spicy kick. The alcohol bites the tongue. Aniseed. Fennel and a touch of mint.
Finish
Warm. spicy. dry.
Comment
That whisky definitely needs water to cut the edges. Incredibly oily. With a good dash of water, refreshing and invigorating.

Nose
Clotted cream kicks off a very complex nose. A little nutty with some malt notes. Almost a green feel to it, a grass edge, dried herbs.
Palate
Thick and coating. The creamy notes come through with a poached pear and custard edge.
Finish
Sweet and dry.
Comment
Great nose but it does not follow through. That said a very restorative dram for cold nights.
