Nose
Edgy and slightly herbal with honey and a touch of sweet, almost grainy notes along with sultana and white grape. With time it becomes a little tropical in character.
Palate
Opens with a touch of coffee and again a slightly crisp grain-like note. Creamy toffee appears on the middle as the oak arrives. Pleasantly deep if a little straightforward.
Finish
Fabulously spicy, mouth-watering and juicy, which was a surprise!
Comment
I thought it was going to be a fairly simple grain whisky and then it sprang to life on the finish.

Nose
Dried ginger, brandy snap biscuits and a touch of smoked maple syrup. Some sweet fragrant Earl Grey tea lurks underneath.
Palate
A little watery for the strength, with caramel notes, some sweet tea and toasted almonds.
Finish
A pleasant toastiness develops further in, alongside some drying oak.
Comment
Not a star performer, but hints of something interesting in there, held back somewhat by hesitancy.
