Nose
Sweaty, cheesy, this is like the changing room of a sumo wrestler. Some parchment and soy notes. Very savoury.
Palate
Struck match, a hint of wallnut bread and over ripe banana. This is a mouthfilling whisky but not quite in the right way.
Finish
Copper and blood orange.
Comment
This one is not really to my taste.

Nose
Ripe orange and zesty pomello, followed by plum soaked in coffee liqueur. Well worn leather gloves and espresso sweetened with muscovado.
Palate
The flavours echo the nose, toasted grist, warm leather, Seville orange. Red currant, cranberry and membrillo paste. Traces of sulphur emerge.
Finish
Quite dry but opens well with water.
Comment
A little like kissing someone after smoking a cigar.
