Nose
Soft toffee and corn with hard, brittle barley, light honey and a touch of waxy citrus. Subtly oaked with a light floral hyacinth-like note developing.
Palate
Lightly smoked with über sweet honey and syrup, with the alcohol struggling to keep it in check. Light mentholated herbs and toasty oak follow.
Finish
Long, lightly spiced and remaining sweet, although the spices build intensity.
Comment
I liked the nose but the palate was a little sweet and simplistic.

Nose
Corn-fed roast chicken, rubbed with allspice and crisped up nicely. There is a cooked red meat note that rises up from the glass. All in, a meaty old nose!
Palate
Pork scratching and a pint of real ale, followed by a big bowl of strawberry jelly. This starts off meaty and slightly salty before getting sweet and utterly delicious.
Finish
The sweetness remains to give a really easy drinking whiskey that seemed like it might be a challenge at first.
Comment
I think drinkers of this style of whiskey might find this a little weak, but I really like it.
