Issue 65
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Peaty. Smouldering fish boxes, fish heads, heather, ink, meat. Mature and complex. Mixing the harbour and the beach. Good weight.
Palate: A lovely balance struck between dried soft fruits, damson like sweetness and the heathery smoke.
Finish: Long. slightly leathery.
Comment: Cutting this to 40% means it's lost some of its energy. Let's have a cask strength version!
8.3
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Rich, oaky. Chestnut, warm melted chocolate, ripe dates. Cedar. Tobacco leaf. Hint of mushroom.
Palate: Round, smooth. Slightly watery at midpalate but regaining life. Oak prevails in a gentle way. Dried fruit and stewed apples.
Finish: Medium, smooth. Liquorice.
Comment: A pleasant autumnal dram. Good balance, a bit tottering on the palate. But that can be forgiven.
