The name of the bottling is quite the mouthful: Nectar of the Daily Dram, 'Red Oak Heads,' Cask 377.

Nose: Rather elegant and 'orange,' with a bit of oaky varnish. Surprisingly mute here, though elements of sawdust are present. It takes some time, but it does open a bit more. Light red sherry notes, soft nuts like cashews, and pepper from the wood. (with water) More light tropical fruits, though this also becomes a bit more alcoholic. Barely, but enough. Honey and a pleasant oily quality - flax seed? Earthy, subtly, of drops from a damp forest.

Palate: Very lovely! More in the mouth than on the nose. Tropical and lush fruits. Mango, pineapple, and cantaloupe. Very elegant varnish, ash, honey, and chili pepper. (with water) Much simpler here. Honey, ash, oily, great wood (like a wooden bourbon cask). Simpler, but I may prefer it for the ashy quality.

Finish: Pretty much the same thing going on here. It reminded me, with water, a bit of a well aged HP, though maybe a bit ashier, a nice little addition to the dram. B+
