Nose
Cherry drops, a huge hit of sherry and vanilla. Allspice, runny honey, new oak and some really delicious rum tones. If the nose continues into the rest of the areas, this will be whisky of the issue.
Palate
A hint of rye, this is spicy with a hint of red fruits, jams, and great oak notes. I'd take this over ice in a dirty downtown bar.
Finish
Spice, cinnamon and oak notes. Delicious.
Comment
The perfect Old Fashioned whiskey? Na, just give me this one neat and a dime for the juke box in the corner.

Nose
Sticky toffee pudding with a glaze of dark marmalade, hints of treacle, tamarind and star anise. Turkish coffee and salmiak.
Palate
Perfumed, polished teak which has been lightly smoked. Eastern spices and pomegranate syrup.
Finish
Molten and smouldering.
Comment
Brooding. Omar Sharif in a thoughtful mood.
