Nose
Fruity and malty. Pear drop. It slowly opens up on lovely vanilla syrup and light toffee. A pleasant herbal note. Green tea mixed with basil. With water, an earthy and peaty touch.
Palate
Firm but round. Oak is more present than on the nose but pleasantly frames the malty flavours; and again this herbal character.
Finish
Dry, slightly spicy.
Comment
A well structured dram. More appreciated neat than diluted. Water enhances oak and bitterness.

Nose
Lots of fruit and sweet notes then turns more to burnt sugar with a hint of coffee. Layers of pepper and a little smoke too.
Palate
Big and chewy with a slightly bittersweet oak touch. Just a hint of ginger and dried herbs.
Finish
Hot and peppery.
Comment
Very complex but very appealing.
