Nose
Soft. Vanilla, some grain? Touch of crisp cereal, dried grass, pecan and lemon. With water just a little foosty/musty.
Palate
Clean with light dried fruits, then old cellar and dried flower. Old pears. Sadly, it's musty when diluted.
Finish
Lemon verbena.
Comment
It's a decent blend, but there's something about the wood that doesn't seem quite right.

Nose
Fruity and malty. Fudge, ripe medlar. Apple and cinnamon pie. Some barley water.A slight ozonic note, like a garden after a heavy shower.
Palate
Smooth. Sweet. A bit weak and watery. Sweet maltiness then a spicy edge. Tangerine juice in the back.
Finish
Short. Astringent.
Comment
A decent dram although a bit dour on the finish. But no real excitement.
