Nose
Solid vanilla and chocolate with some mashed banana and clean dry spiciness behind. Cold green tea,vine flower. Oddly Cognac like.
Palate
No Cognac here though! The honeyed start fools you then it dries intensely and begins to build in spiced intensity. Clean and well balanced. Some green fennel notes.
Finish
Closes down nicely.
Comment
Balanced and controlled.

Nose
Another clean nose with a good rye grip. There is fruit here but all is balanced perfectly.
Palate
The rye is sharp and concentrated after a sweet Golden Syrup start. There is a hint of toffee apple and spun sugar.
Finish
Leaves you wanting more.
Comment
Not quite an in your face rye but shows balance and promise.
