Nose
Oaky, with a butyric note. Damp cellar. Slowly opening on fruit aromas. Greengage jam. The butyric note steps back.
Palate
Sweet at first then some gripping oak and a spice bite. Rum custard in the back. Still a butyric touch.
Finish
Dry, warm with a bitter edge.
Comment
This whisky needs time to fully express itself. Oak is prevailing which makes the whisky unbalanced.

Nose
Natural gas? Actually given a bit of time in the glass, more of a paraffin note emerges with some lingering spice and a little spirit.
Palate
Unfortunately a little thin and bitter on the palate, backed up with some spice and the surprising emergence of some wine/vanilla soaked pears.
Finish
This develops very nicely into a malty chocolate box of a dram, with some excellent length.Surprising indeed.
Comment
Not a huge fan of the nose, it must be said, but the more time you let this to develop, the goods are definitely delivered.
