Tasting notes
Taster   Arthur Motley
Nose: Burnt sticks, lemon flavoured toilet cleaner (in a good way), and tarry rope.
Palate: A big, sweet, citric peat-boff, followed by a whiplash of dry, moreish ropiness.
Finish: Storm-lashed rope.
Comment: You can see why the Germans get so obsessed with this stuff. A peaty happy-slap.
8.3
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Slightly stony, with smoked meat, juniper, aniseed, rock pools, wet face cloth and paint thinner (??!). Clean, assertive with a little immaturity.
Palate: Very dusty start. Coal shovel, damp nutty slack, zesty, wet rope. Bigger than you'd expect, but a little one-dimensional.
Finish: Crisp, phenolic.
Comment: A slap in the face with a wet haddock.
