Nose
Marzipan oak, mature, oxidised, pruney, sub-Armagnac-esque dark fruits and hints of treacle. Layered with crisp rye giving balance. Muscavado sugar, sweet orange, feather-like corn and earth.
Palate
Ultra soft liquid orange and raisinated fruit liberally coated in treacle. Hints of dark coffee, chocolate, spice and slightly bitter oak.
Finish
Great finish! True, it's a little austere with bitter chocolate and a surprising hint of rose petal marc, but the soft corn takes the edge off.
Comment
Copious eulogising is definitely deserved, but to be brief… wow!

Nose
Very well integrated nose which gives some fruity-sweetness of redcurrants and plums, but also a nice spicy overtone of cinnamon and nutmeg. There is complexity here.
Palate
The cinnamon and nutmeg from the nose lead you into a world of old leather, secondhand bookstores and vintage car parts. Like a workshop from the 1920s, forgotten.
Finish
Off-dry becoming more spicy before finishing like an Old Fashioned.
Comment
Very, very good whiskey making, pure and simple.
