Nose
Leather,oak and sandalwood with fragrant lift of dried rose petal,orange blossom with a fat corn note. Generous and quite oily.
Palate
Immediate rose attack,alongside orange blossom water. Very sweet and direct. However all a little front-loaded as it seems to fade a little to the finish leaving little more than the oak.
Finish
Tight and slightly oaked.
Comment
This would make a great cocktail whisky and that's not being dismissive!

Nose
Varnish,fresh paint,a touch of turpentine. We are definitely not in a distillery! Far behind,a fruity note. Nuts and pistachio. Dry apricot. The paint scent fades away very slowly. Walnut stain. With water,a pastry note.
Palate
Sweet at start then bitter. Odd taste. Wood and again this varnish note.
Finish
Short,quite sharp. Bitter. With water,cloves.
Comment
Strange sensation of going from a building site to the dentist's! I would not say I enjoyed it.
