Nose
Pungent, earthy. Manure with hints of violet, tobacco and rye-like herbal spices. Young with dark, edgy grains. Some light oak and smoke in the background and a touch of orange.
Palate
Surprisingly soft given the ABV. Hints of orange, earth, tobacco, coffee and manure appear. Subtler than the nose but the oils and herbal notes build. When diluted, its simple but rounder, focus is on the coffee and dark grains.
Finish
A little raw and hot with an oily finish. Water softens and emphasises the bitter oak.
Comment
I think this could have done with more time in the cask.

Nose
Rich and rounded. Delicate smoke element here which is hard to place, but underpins a nose of real depth. Dried cranberries, leather and smoked hard cheese are the order of the day.
Palate
Sits beautifully with the smoke playing the supporting role. Red summer berries, lemon grass and some very flavourful botanicals; juniper and orris root.
Finish
Nice and spicy but not overpowering. Drying without being harsh.
Comment
An active cask, probably exhausted from the effort outlaid on this liquid, but it has resulted in a whisky which no one can deny isn't quality.
