Re- Tasted: July 2013
The aromas are quite, thick, floral and syrupy sweet with violets, menthol and herbal notes. Young and edgy with plenty of sweet toffee’d oak and only a subtle rye spiciness. Wow, this is a lot thicker than I remember it and less spicy although with time some spiced orange, treacle and light cocoa notes appear.

Dense and thick with a touch of toasted corn and lazyoak vanillins. The gentle rye spices arrive to give it an edge along with hints of black pepper, cocoa, bitter chcoclate and treacle. Super smooth and deep, mind you have to wait for the layers of oak to part before the spicy rye can be found. Very long with an earthy, light rose petal marc-like note on the finish, but those soft, earthy spices linger.
