Nose
Soap, violets, toasted hazelnuts and dried raspberries and cranberries. Orange sauce and honey, with cinnamon and nutmeg, cedar wood and Chinese five spice. Wood smoke through fresh laundry.
Palate
Chewy, nutty, spicy and slightly smoke-laced. Fruitcake slathered with marmalade, while a pipe and its dottle sit nearby. Oily gears and salted padron peppers and hops towards the end.
Finish
Raisins and a whisper of charcoal.
Comment
Rich, complex and rewarding.

Nose
Walking into the shower room after someone has used it – soap, talc powder, wet towels and floral perfume. Then a nutty, woody edge brings humidors, flower blossom honey and a touch of anise.
Palate
The nutty, woody edge leads off, gentle Latika tobacco oils swirl with a honey and toasted sourdough bread. Spices come at the end, almost a griddle chilli note.
Finish
Fruitcake with pipe tobacco as well.
Comment
A big bold whisky, very layered and intriguing. For late night contemplation.
