N: Wood (perhaps too much), dirt and grass.
P: Light spice.
F: Hot.
I suspect maybe this version is the closest to the "unfinished" whiskey, which reveals a rather lackluster light spirit.  Papering over the cracks as they say?

A nose and mouth full of alcoholic wood, then... ??? Nothing else. 
JS
 
Little to no nose.  Not very complex taste.  Smooth but short finish.  Very okay. 
DW
 

The nose seems to be missing; mild oak/raisin, hints of orange. But that's a stretch. It's initially spicy and the grape/raisin notes continue for a short, unremarkable finish. Nothing offensive, but he pieces just don't fit together. Not recommended.
