    Nose: Grain silo. Hay. A hint of burnt oak. Minerally, like hot sand blowing around a beach. A hint of butter and canteloupe. After a few drops of water vanilla and spiced scones come through that were previously hiding. Palate: Oak, raw grain, and cream. Again, a bit of sweetness, spice, and vanilla but only after adding some water. Very soft and pleasant, almost effervescent. Finish: Slow build, medium length. More oak and vanilla and cream, with some black pepper. Slightly minerally/metallic

    Scotch newbie trying his first cognac N: sour citrus, predominantly lemon, and overripe green grapes, with a slight undercurrent of sugar just on the edge of burning. If you've ever tried to deglaze a pan with lemon juice and accidentally let the lemon juice go just a bit too far, that plus the grapes. Definitely boozy, but not it a bad way. P: extremely smooth. Extremely light. Surprisingly little flavor given the strong smell. I would believe this was 25% abv if I didn't know what it was. Caramelized sugar with hints of fresh grape and citrus, and maybe a little fresh cut grass. Not much else. Finish: slick. Most of the flavor dissipates immediately but the caramelized sugars last a minute or so

    nose: smoke, dulce de leche, fresh challah, baked orange zest, ocean mist, dried moss, hot sand. palate: oak forward, then spice and then honey, fading into vanilla lemon cookies and burnt toast. 4/10 sweetness. finish: more oak with some vanilla and spice and a bit of salt. slightly waxey mouthfeel. medium length will definitely pick up more, will probably alternate between this and ardbeg 10 when I need a reasonably priced islay

    Nose: Brown sugar, spice, and honey roasted peanuts. Palate: raisins from the port barrels, with more brown sugar and spice, and some vanilla wafers. moderate sweetness. a little heat finish: warm spice, moderate length Absolutely nothing wrong with this bourbon, but its a little steep at $50. would gladly pay $40 but unless I start making more money it might be a rare buy.

    n: peat, sulfur, burning tires and bandaids. deep beneath that cigar smoke, leather, hay, and sharpies. p: surprising sweetness up front, and smoke from burning seaweed. mushroom-like umami quality that literally makes my mouth water. More seaweed and moss peatyness with a little toasted sunflower seed. f: warm, lingering, briny and sweet.

    Nose: vanilla, honey. Bits of cloves and black pepper and apples. A little bit of smoke, but also some acetone and rubbing alcohol. Taste: mostly oak and vanilla. Some sweetness, moreso if you let it open up for 10 minutes. Not as comlex as I expected based on reviews. Finish: oak and heat. Could definitely use some more time in the barrel.
