    N: We are talking of an all-bourbon funkster, offering fresh resinous vanilla and a hessian note.
    T: Super-clean & slick on sweet vanilla resins. Faultless straight shooter that gains traction.
    F: Sustained finish, though not quite so with water. Barley sugar finish, some hessian underneath.
    C: A decent cask-led contemporary-styled bottling.

    SMWS Tasting Notes: The nose reminded one panellist of fixing his model railway - others got cooking chocolate, pain au chocolat, pine needles, a carpenter's bench and an Afghan coat. The palate had intense, sweet wood smoke, medicinal elements (menthol, Euthymol) foamy bananas and stewed rhubarb; an after-taste of chewing twigs and coltsfoot rock - all rather earthy and masculine - but good. Water and time improved the nose - perfumed, floral smoke; spicy Christmas baking and an old leather bag of wooden-shafted gold clubs. The palate had hints of herbal smoke, coffee, Murray Mints and salty driftwood - a perfect dram for coming in from the cold.
