Nose
Spicy and grainy with buttery oak, earth, fragrant spice, grainy coffee and a lightly herbal rye-like note. The focus is on the oak character. Lovely creamy, toasted, toffeed and gritty vanillins.
Palate
Opens with the toasted and toffeed oak, burnt at the edges. Gritty and herbal spices emerge but the oak is more tannic than creamy. Pleasantly vibrant and edgy though.
Finish
Reasonable length with lingering burnt toffee, tannins and herbal rye-like notes.
Comment
A lovely, complex nose but the oak gipped the palate a little too much.

Nose
Grassy with a tangy note at start. Grain mustard. But slowly giving way to biscuity notes. Digestive biscuit. Hint of cooked apple and garden mint. Delicate and shy.
Palate
Smooth then followed by a spicy outburst. A bit watery at mid palate. Getting really spicy. Chilli. Totally different from the nose
Finish
Warm, soothing on a nutty note.
Comment
A pleasant whispering whisky on the nose but an assertive character on the palate. The alcohol is biting. Lacks balance.
