Nose
Tinned pears and fruit salad with lots of syrup. Clean aromas of agave, and sweet Gomme syrup. Grain like with floral notes of hyacinth, daffodil and blue bell.
Palate
More of the tinned pear, white peach and salted lemon. Lots of flavours one would find in a pâtisserie, butter pastry, malted loaf with a bitter finish of apple pie.
Finish
Sweet and short with a slightly salty lick.
Comment
Great nose but a little unforgiving for my palate.

71
Nose
A blast of pine resin, sand paper, fermented fruit and freshly chopped herbs. All very unusual indeed.
Palate
A youthfulness is very much in evidence here. Bright, brittle fresh pear notes sit alongside a spirity note and fresh oak vanilla/tannins.
Finish
Very short, with orchard fruit notes.
Comment
Needs a far greater (and longer) interaction with the cask to truly show off its assets.
