Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Quite rooty/turfy smokiness - even freshly turned earth - with touches of baked banana and, with water, laurel/bog myrtle. A good sound, sweet central purity gives the necessary balance.
Palate: Plenty of cooling eucalyptus qualities and a light dustiness before it thickens in the centre revealing fruit compote.
Finish: Fresh and smoky with a building level of honeyed sweetness.
Comment: Though hot, go easy on the water.
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Phenolic. Tar, cough syrup. The smoke emerges slowly. And creosote. Citrussy.
Palate: Sweet at first then bursting into a fizzy spiciness. Smoke wraps up the palate, then give way to liquorice.
Finish: Dry and sweet at the same time.
Comment: Difficult to enjoy without water. Water enhances the smokiness and releases a sooty note. Ne plus ultra for the peat freaks out there.
