n:  Whisky in a tin pail.  Hint of burnt toffee.

 

p:  Sweet and savory cinnamon soaked cedar.  Not bad at all.  Finish leans red hots on fresh firewood.

 
Fuji
 

Cinnamon shavings, fireball candy, wet herbal root, star anise, brown sugar.


Salted butter, brine, sea salt, dry oak and white pepper.


Lightly sweet finish.

 

There is a lot going on with this and the individual components are nice.  But as a whole, it's not cohesive.  The salt/ brine and oak is too pronounced.
