Tasting notes
Taster   Arthur Motley
Nose: A handful of lightly peated barley, tea tree and a musky, perfumed element. Band Aids. A creaminess, like a creamy coffee. Crème de dulce.
Palate: Forest fruits and charcoal, with bonfire smoke.
Finish: A little more smoke fading to burnt sage.
Comment: A good complex mix of floral flavours, fruit and smoke.
8.3
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Mature. Light leather and maltiness. In time, violet then a shift to vanilla, brazil nut, polished oak. Light smoke.
Palate: An oily start, creosote but with a balancing crisp nuttiness. A slow, peaty fog then tobacco and the cinders of a woodland bonfire. Water brings out damp mash, lanolin, heather and a briny note.
Finish: Long, perfumed, salty.
Comment: Has richness and some finesse.
