Nose
Fresh burnt grass. Garden bonfires.
Palate
Honey. Heather. Sherryish, nutty, buttery. Marshmallow.
Finish
Gradual emergence of smoky warmth. Like sitting in front of a log fire.
Comment
A lovely whisky. A sweetish bottling. More complex and elegant than the 'official' 12 Years Old, but not quite as expressive as the 18.

Nose
Dense, concentrated nose: mead/metheglin, spiced apple, singed orange peel, peat smoke. Beerenauslese with peat on top.
Palate
As you'd expect, thick with a good feel. Quite phenolic, subtle and elegant.
Finish
Medium smoky.
Comment
A Norse nose, concentrated and delicious with more smoke than you normally find, though maybe a little woody.
