Nose
Ginger and brown sauce. Progressively more savoury.
Palate
Real mouth-presence. Slightly waxy, with tropical fruit and spice.
Finish
Polished oak and Cherryade.
Comment
A drop of water really brings this whisky together.

Nose
Quite meaty at first, roast pork. But there is a sweetness too, baked apples, poached pears. Hints of spice lurk too.
Palate
Coats the mouth, feels like slick olive oil. The spices build up gently with some dried pineapple and coconut.
Finish
Long and lingering.
Comment
An interesting whisky with layers of flavour to explore.
