    This was a sample courtesy of Peatbogger . A lovely dram to savour . 
    • Nose
      For some reason dark cooked cabbage , but that isn't a bad thing , golden syrup , shag tobacco and a very well made Christmas pudding . 
    • Taste
      This is full bodied and it coats the mouth , various nuts ,ginger cake , moss and baked beans . 
    • Finish
      Long finish , again with baked beans and dried oregano on the death .

    yes, whisky changes with water, but I've yet to find one i think improves with it

    This is no exception, and without water this is a tough one, a real vikings dram.

    Probably quite young, but very pleasing.
    • Nose
      coco powder, light sherry, cranberry, some orange and light smoke, at 56% the alcohol is surprisingly mild and sweet, water brings out more citrus and fruit
    • Taste
      hot and sour, sweet tobacco, chocolatte, water reduce both the hot and sour, it also removes the tobacco I quite enjoyed, and the chocolatte turns to caramel
    • Finish
      Hot pepper, very malty, drying, coco returns in the form of very dark bitter chocolatte, water makes a rather hot long finish go sweet and medium
