Nose
More clove like polished rosewood casket. Thicker and sweeter than most, some brazil nut and toffee. Rye is in the background.
Palate
Soft with some oak and cocoa. Quite gentle to start but the rye slowly unsticks itself from the toffee and begins to grow and grow.
Finish
Lime and orange cut with oil of cloves and ginger...then typical youthful dustiness.
Comment
This is a clever, tricksy rye. Worth a look.

Nose
The rye is lurking here,first thing you get is polish and wood. However some sweet notes mixed with a light nuttiness.
Palate
The rye seems to hit first,retract and the come back again towards the end. Some wood notes and toffee too.
Finish
More oily than the others and zesty.
Comment
Took me a little by surprise. Seems to be one thing then shifts.
