Tasting notes
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Intense. Like being in a farmyard. Straw, creosote, animal breath. Fruity. Crab apples. Behind the smoke, a sweet note. Vanilla wafers. Hint of coconut. White chocolate; multilayered. With water, herring.
Palate: Sweet and spicy. Smoked almonds, vanilla syrup. Very energetic. The alcohol is still untamed.
Finish: Dry, minty.
Comment: A sturdy dram. Water smoothes it without adulterating its cheerfulness.
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Masses of peat oils - pure phenols at work along with smoked bacon and mature nutty cheese. With water it goes back to the kiln and smouldering damp peat calf.
Palate: Big smoke from the start and a crunchy crystalline saltiness. Seems to tense slightly before relaxing finally to show its sweet heart.
Finish: Smoky.
Comment: Another to have with minimal dilution. Peat freaks will lap it up.
