Nose
Clean and spicy. Cinnamon and cumin sizzling in butter backed with blackcurrant and strawberry fruitiness. There's melted chocolate before it firms into cigar tobacco.
Palate
A very juicy start before those spices pick up and carry the flavours along. Meanwhile a succulent, almost oily, syrupy sweetness (tinned fruits) is bedding things down in the middle of the tongue. Complex and unctuous.
Finish
Green plums and a firm dry farewell.
Comment
You wonder what's coming next... the Black Spot? The Clear Spot?

Nose
Fruity and spicy. Crystallised ginger, apple toffee. Demerara syrup.
Palate
Very sweet at first. Velvety feel. Gets spicier at mid palate. Cooked fruit. A hint of milk chocolate.
Finish
Medium long, sweet and spicy at the same time.
Comment
Spices balance the sweet heart of that delicious whisky. Oak is perfectly integrated. Excellent.
