Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Immediate complex phenolics: dried crab shells, rock pools, wet seaweed,Dutch salted liquorice, woodsmoke, chili, barbecued peppers and in timeengine oil.
Palate: The oily quality coats the tongue. Not just about the smoke but awelling up of languorous, rich fruits which mix with shore, violet, laurel(bog myrtle) Ever-changing.
Finish: Ripe, long and complex.
Comment: As good a Lagavulin as I've tasted. Hie thee to Islay!
9.3
Taster   Dominic Roskrow
Nose: Delightfully sooty, oily and salty. A steam train on a coastal railway. Atouch of blackcurrant too.
Palate: A heady mix of sweet and full berry fruit, sooty smoke and rampant peat.
Finish: Full, almost creamy and with soot and fruit.
Comment: If you're a sucker for rich fruity peated whisky this won'tdisappoint you.
