Tasting notes
Taster   Dominic Roskrow
Nose: Fishy and peaty initially but work with it and there are traces of citrus, andchocolate lime candy.
Palate: Surprisingly delicate interplay between citrus fruits, green fruitsand peat.
Finish: Firm and lingering, with peat coating the mouth.
Comment: Peat enhancing a whisky and not dominating it. Stylish.

Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Pleasant smokiness -we're on the bonfire side of things, burningcreosoted railway sleepers, spruce logs. Then comes sillage before anozone freshness takes charge.
Palate: A nutty start with the smoke in check. You search for sweetness but it's hardto detect. Oak grips a little.
Finish: Clean, dry and peppery.
Comment: Great nose but a little dry on the tongue.
