Nose
Soft, nutty Oloroso and peat smoke. Briny with cinder toffee, treacle and fruit. Medicinal with boiled sweets, heather and vanilla custard. Toasty oak and a touch of manure with water.
Palate
Manzanilla-like, nutty with treacle, prune, walnuts, liquorice, charcoal and peat. Bitter chocolate on the middle. Water brings out barley and honey.
Finish
Long and smoky with mouth-coating dusty peat, burnt wood and treacle. Water emphasises the sweeter peat notes and heather.
Comment
A fascinating experience!

Nose
There is a full-bodied nose to this dram, which suggest a good (possibly new) wood ageing. The result is lots of oak spice, pine nuts and fresh forest floor. 
Palate
Overly bitter and spicy without water, but once that's added it comes to life as a warming dram – very much the water of life. If I was stuck camping I'd like a hip flask of this.
Finish
More oak on the finish with big blood orange notes.
Comment
A really lovely whisky in the new world style.
