    Nose: glue, maraschino cherries, chocolate caramels, soft brown sugar, melon pan, amaretti biscuits, camp coffee, Australian soft liquorice, pontefract cakes, orange oil and candied kumquats, teak, black cardamom, orris root and burnt caramel, deglet nour dates and sticky toffee pudding
    Palate: parkin, treacle toffee, bitter orange and carob beans, powdered ginger and chilli caramel
    Finish: caramelised wood and baking spices, silan with tahini, Swedish cinnamon buns

    With water
    Nose: corn syrup, varnished wood, orange polenta cake, Hotel Chocolat caramel chocolate, jaggery and black tea, pineapple jam and candy corn
    Palate: golden caster sugar, Danish biscuits, caramel corn and alfajores
    Finish: brown butter and blondies, sugar cookies and cinnamon red hots, sweetened dried cape gooseberries and chai

    This whisky really succeeds when it's the second or third pour, it's a little full-on as a first whisky. Honey cashews become a dominant note as an additional dram.
