Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: TCP, tarred boat, iodine-impregnated seaweeds. Peat. Wouahh! Then candied orange, trifle, milk chocolate.
Palate: And the beat goes on... iodine, tar pastilles, salty water. Ginger bread. Liquorice.
Finish: Warm, salty. Dry and nutty. Sooty touch.
Comment: Loch Harport on a winter's day, gale force eight! Less peppery than younger versions. Complex, endearing, balanced. 18 seems a perfect age for malts.

Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Complex, burning heather, sweet tobacco, old warehouse, spent bonfire. Underneath is almond paste/nougat, butter biscuits and a lightly herbal note. Plenty of smoke. Rich and complex.
Palate: A slow start, then pepper, a light smoked fish note, fruit syrup. Builds to an explosive finish.
Finish: Red peppercorn.
Comment: Truly fantastic. All of Talisker's attack...and then some.
