Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Tickling. Fresh. Straightforward. First, wet seaweeds and herbs steaming on a bonfire, then a touch of smoked meat and back to burning grass. Followed by lingering creosote.
Palate: Sweet maltiness at first, then a fizzy feel and a huge invasion of smoke and seaweeds. Drying off on a more 'tactile'
Finish: Dry, grassy, sooty.
Comment: Peat plays the major part in the aromatic display, with an assertive sea influence.

Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Young and vibrant. Sweet. Wood sugars. Light bran, hint of heathery smoke, marine/beach like. Very pure with a touch of dried herbs, soft fruit, burning turf.
Palate: Clean, if slightly aggressive. Malt, oak and peat. Dolly mixtures. Smoke builds near the finish.
Finish: The peat is here, damp seaweed, heather.
Comment: This is young and everything seems locked in.
